In a 24/7 economy where production runs on the just-in-time principle, goods are shipped across the world. With this setup, we stretch the logistics flows quite heavenly, and although utmost attention is given to the goods, handling incidents happen, like an unexpected drop, tilting, or just outside the prescribed temperature range.
Such an accident might cause quite some issues further in the stream. Parts may not fit exactly when being assembled into the final product; or the final quality is jeopardized.
An asset tracker based on the NTAG SmartSensor combined with a MEMS accelerometer and a humidity sensor provides you with the handling visibility of your goods.
For logistics, the solution with both NFC and RAIN RFID provides a clear visibility during the trajectory. Each time your shipment passes a checkpoint gate, one gets the status, and in case of issues, one can initiate corrective actions, like restarting a shipment.
Thanks to the flexibility of the NTAG SmartSensor, solution partners and sellers can easily create derivatives with our examples in the SDK: an asset monitor indicating incidents that might harm your goods. By implementing a source of trusted identity, these solutions fit in blockchain roll-outs.
