The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a network of billions of physical objects with embedded IoT sensors that detect and respond to some type of input from the physical environment, monitor the objects’ status, collect meaningful data about them, and communicate that information to software applications.
Truly smart objects are embedded with both an RFID tag and an IoT sensor to measure data. The affordable devices and systems make shipment tracking and condition monitoring more accurate than ever before, giving companies the ability to detect and prevent damage to their products before they reach customers and generate more data about their inbound and outbound shipments.
SenseIT IoT by Domain
Asset condition monitoring is the process of monitoring the condition of trailers, containers and products, based on parameters such as temperature, moisture, acceleration, tilt, shock, tampering, and other variables, while at a facility or in transit.
When damage occurs, failure to find the source can result in millions of dollars in lost profits, a slower time to market, and unhappy customers. It’s often impossible to tell when and where the damage occurred, however, because products typically move through multiple distribution paths.
SenseIT IoT by Domain utilizes innovative IoT sensors to track your shipments from end-to-end, capturing data from around the world and enabling you to quickly locate items globally and alerting you instantly to condition changes. Your business will gain the ability to:
- Remotely track assets in real time, in transit and at facilities;
- View shipments on a geospatial map where distressed shipments are shown in yellow or red;
- Know shipment locations at predefined times (e.g., every 1, 6 or 12 hours);
- Know the condition of your assets and customize tolerances (e.g., minimum and maximum temperatures) that trigger alerts when met;
- Respond in real-time if thresholds are exceeded;
- Maintain a complete history of shipment-related events;
- Maintain a vendor performance history over many shipments;
Sensor data is gathered and consolidated in a SAP HANA cloud database that is fully integrated with SAP Business One, providing you with a single view of each planned or actual shipment
The system brings your organization’s data together with one unified view, eliminating the need to have separate solutions for transaction processing and analytics. Also, because it is a cloud-based system, SAP HANA is an affordable way for businesses of all sizes to solve previously unsolvable problems.
SenseIT IoT works with various sensor manufacturers, RFID, cellular, satellite (and combinations). If your business is not on an SAP platform, SenseIT IoT can be integrated with other ERP platforms.
