If you’re transporting goods via a single modal transportation – say, a one-week truck journey – our sensors will be there with you every step of the way, offering near-real-time data. But what if your shipment is traveling let’s say from China to the US, undergoing multiple transport modes like trucks, airplanes, and railways, spanning 2-3 months? No worries! Our sensors are up to the task.
Despite their size, our sensors are equipped to handle any transportation format, irrespective of duration. How? By leveraging adaptive data transmission frequency. Once set up on our platform, the sensors respond to various triggers, adjusting their data transmission rate as needed. For example, if a sensor is activated and remains at a warehouse without a location change, it operates differently, conserving energy.
The takeaway? Don’t judge a sensor by its size.
Our sensors aren’t just tiny marvels; they’re smart. How they handle data transmission is a testimony to their sophistication.
When stationary, say at a warehouse, they dial down, transmitting data at a very reduced frequency. Why waste energy when there’s no action, right? But as soon as there’s movement, indicating the commencement of a shipment, they ramp up, transmitting data every 15 or 30 minutes.
Things get even more interesting when the shipment reaches a port. Anticipating weeks of sea transport, where cell towers are non-existent and data transmission is a challenge, the sensors adopt a different strategy. They continue to gather information at intervals the client requires (be it every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour), but the transmission becomes more sporadic — maybe once every 6 or 12 hours. This conserves the battery, ensuring the sensor remains active for the entirety of the journey.
Upon reaching the destination port, recognizing a new geofence, the sensors adapt again. Depending on the next transportation mode, whether by truck or rail, they adjust their data transmission frequency accordingly.
Before deploying our sensors, we engage in detailed discussions with our clients, understanding their specific transportation formats. This ensures that regardless of the transport type – be it a week-long single modal journey or a two-month multimodal ordeal involving ships, trucks, and more – our sensors are geared to last the distance.
So, in essence, with Moeco‘s sensors, you’re not just getting size efficiency but intelligent adaptability, tailor-made for your logistical needs.
