What are we doing?
Lost and late supply-chain production items can cause significant loss in productivity, hitting suppliers hard and costing millions per year. Smarter monitoring of critical assets in transit will enable a digital Certificate of Conformity to be created, ensuring the product is within acceptable standards when it arrives.
This industrial application will use 5G to track and observe asset conditions in transit. Assets - in this instance, a tool or part - will have sensors attached or be carried in smart containers or boxes that have sensors and connections to 5G. The sensors will provide feedback on asset conditions which could be environmental such as temperature; events such as shock or exposure to extremes; or location using GPS.
The data will be utilised to better track the location of assets and respond to events that take them outside tolerances.
