The Internet of Things and Transponders – Logistical Support at It’s Best
According to an article in www.zdnet.com titled “What is the IoT? Everything you need to know about the Internet of Things right now,” the Internet of Things or IoT refers to the physical devices around the world that are now connected to the Internet that have the capability of collecting and sharing data. Thanks to cheap processors and wireless networks, it is now possible to turn anything, from a pill to an airplane to a self-driving car into part of the IoT. The IoT adds a level of digital intelligence to devices that would otherwise be useless, enabling them to communicate real-time data without a human being involved and effectively merging the digital and physical worlds.
With this concept of IoT in mind, Futuristic Aviation, and Maritime Enterprise, Inc. or FAME Inc., came up with an innovative device that that is reliable, secure, easily deployable and affordable for real-time intelligent monitoring and management of resources – in maritime, aviation, land transportation, enterprise applications. This IoT device is the vehicle transponder.
More affordable than SIM-based GPS trackers, FAME’s transponders can be installed on any vehicle. Whether it be used for the fleet, public transport logistics or trucking, these transponders, are configurable, come with durable casing, are easily installed, can send messages independently and has GPS and sensors that can track and monitor in real time. It also comes with optional sensor connections.
FAME transponders also allow you to:
- Monitor temperature at real-time through pressure sensors which can be sent to the cloud at a dynamic frequency;
- Select the real-time location at a pre-defined frequency of sending;
- Connect pressure sensors to determine pressure changes and even the flow rate by sending real-time information at a dynamic frequency;
- Connect to a Smart Meter to be able to receive real-time current, voltage, power factor and other readings related to the electricity monitoring;
- Connect PIRs or Ultrasonic sensors to be able to determine if there are movements in a particular area or room to determine unauthorized entry; and
- Connect to a tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth or OTG and send information such as messaging or data gathering forms to the cloud in real time.
There are so many things that you can do with FAME’s innovative devices. Thanks to IoT, you are assured that these sensors are managed in real-time and displayed on a map with triggers and alerts. They also have the capability to monitor, configure and send commands to these devices in real time, eliminating manual checks and configurations.
The reports can be customized to suit their customers’ needs. Customers can even make use of the archived data so that they can better plan for the future of the business. That is because the sensors also come with a search functionality with filters are also included to be able to get the historical information to be used for planning and analysis.
These IoTs provide innovations that can track maritime, aircraft and land vehicles. The maritime transponders can be installed in any vessel, from the biggest used by cargo companies to the smallest fishing boats used by fishermen. They can track and monitor vessels in real-time, whether it be on desktop computers or on mobile devices. These tracking devices can be installed on any vessel classification, from the biggest used by cargo companies to the smallest fishing boats used by fishermen.
The aircraft transponders make use of FAME’s own gateway that can see and detect the overall air traffic. It can track and monitor general aviation aircraft in real time. Their vehicle transponders are more affordable than SIM-based GPS trackers and can be installed on any vehicle, whether it be used for fleet, public transport, logistics or trucking. All transponders are configurable, comes with an IP66 case, has independent messaging, GPS and sensors capability.
