I make asset-tracking products for logistics companies. Physical security of goods during transportation is a huge concern in my industry, how can the EON Platform help?
The EON Platform can be used to layer a variety of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet Protocol v6 (IPv6) smart technology devices and sensors. In doing so real-time tracking of goods at the discrete item level can be achieved. This is a significant improvement over current asset tracking technologies that primarily function at the truck level only and do not provide information about the security of goods themselves.
The Eginity team is in the process of developing a case study to provide further detail on how smart technologies can be used in the logistics sector to increase security and provide a full chain of custody for merchandise from point of manufacture to final recipient. Read More
