ZigBee principle - Computer Definition
The technique that a domestic honeybee uses to communicate the location of a new food source to other members of the colony.The bee dances in a zigzag pattern that communicates information such as distance and direction, at least according to the ZigBee Alliance, which developed and promotes the ZigBee specification for a wireless personal area network (WPAN). My personal research, as well as the research of many others, suggests there is no such thing, at least not until the ZigBee Alliance coined the term. Oh, well. See also WPAN, ZigBee, and ZigBee Alliance.
