Services

Asset tracking and transport handling Cloud based platform for worldwide carriers.

Challenges

Our client needed a technology partner to develop the software platform and ensure top performance and scalability as the business was growing. As they were ending the first phase of software prototyping and development, which had successfully attracted investors and demonstrated the capabilities of the platform, the company was looking for a provider that could get their product to the enterprise-grade level.

The company provides a disruptive solution for the logistics industry: a real-time, parcel tracking device and service that allows users to track the location, security and condition (if the package is too hot or cold, if it gets wet, if it is opened, if it’s been dropped or tilted and where this happened) of their shipments regardless of the scale, country or carrier.

Solution

Using various IoT sensors and a global MNO/MVNO network, the platform enables carriers to collect information about the location of asset, what are the transport conditions (humidity, temperature) and how the asset is handled during the entire transport (if the package was dropped or opened).

All information is collected in real-time and it’s available in public or private cloud.

  • Monitor the location of asset with GPS accuracy
  • Track temperature from -15C up to +50C
  • Monitor relative humidity between 0-100%
  • Receive a default tilt alert if a parcel is subject to a tilt of more than 30 degrees in any direction
  • Verifies if a shipment has not been opened. Triggers alert when tracker is exposed to more than 4.0 LUX
  • Alert triggered if box subject to 0.4 seconds, freefal – live data about the asset available to customers in the cloud
Key Features
  • GPS location tracking
  • Temperature conditions
  • Humidity conditions
  • Shock events recording for miss-handling
  • Light detection for package opening

Methodology

Phases:
  • Assessed current architecture, proposed and implemented architectural improvements.
  • Introduced automated testing.
  • Developed new features and improved the code / refactored existing functionalities.

Performed security improvements

Results

From a business point of view: we have prepared the foundation that allows the client to go to the production phase and launch the advertising campaign.

From a technology point of view: improved stability, scalability, and performance rinf.tech can provide software and hardware development for your Internet of Things system, from sensors to control interface.
