A Model for Intelligent Transportation of Perishable Products
A model for the application of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and wireless sensors in food logistics to ensure the products’ quality and the traceability along the supply chain, from farms to consumers is proposed.
Hybrid RFID/WSNs for Logistics Management
This chapter introduces the latest research regarding the combination of Radio Frequency Identification, Sensors and Wireless Sensor Networks and a potential use of RFID/sensor network in humanitarian logistics management is described.
The use of RFID sensor tags for perishable products monitoring in logistics operations
This work considers a multi-echelon supply chain model composed of one producer and multiple customers and contrasts the performance of the logistics operations when RFID and sensing technologies are employed and when they are not and presents good practice recommendations.
: Mobile Java Code for Embedded Transport Monitoring Systems
This work is developing an intelligent sensor system that could be integrated into standard containers or reefers and improves the transport facilities for perishable goods.
Intelligent Containers and Sensor Networks Approaches to apply Autonomous Cooperation on Systems with limited Resources
This article considers how RFIDs, sensor networks and low-power microcontrollers can be utilized for autonomous cooperation and how these processes could be realized on systems with limited resources.
The Benefits of Embedded Intelligence - Tasks and Applications for Ubiquitous Computing in Logistics
This article focuses on whether the introduction of the intelligent parcel or vehicle is advantageous compared to server based planning and describes transport logistic examples for networks of autonomous objects with embedded intelligence.
Linking keeping quality models and sensor systems to an autonomous transport supervision system
This reduced scale prototype demonstrates that it is feasible to integrate a real-time supervision system into standard reefer trucks or containers and shows how different harvest conditions influence the keeping quality.
CAN-based monitoring in refrigerated transports
The use of standardized CAN technology can improve monitoring transports, ensuring the inter-operability of the system and the harmonization of the different interfaces.
Going all the way - Detecting and transmitting events with wireless sensor networks in logistics
This paper presents a fully working solution and corresponding prototypical implementation of how such real-time monitoring and event detection can be realized in a context-dependent and user-specific way for wireless sensor network technology in the logistics domain.


Linking RFIDs and Sensors for Logistical Applications
RFID and sensor technologies will have a great impact on supply chain logistics in the next years. Linking these technologies is an essential factor for cost reduction. Besides the direct hardware
Autonomous Logistic Processes - New Demands and First Approaches -
Due to the dynamic and structural complexity of today’s logistics systems and networks, central planning and control of logistic processes becomes increasingly difficult. Thus, decentralised and
A highly sensitive IR-optical sensor for ethylene-monitoring
Precise and continuous ethylene detection is needed in various fruit storage applications. The aim of this work is the development of a miniaturised mid-infrared filter spectrometer for ethylene
A micromachined gas chromatographic column to optimize the gas selectivity for a resistive thin film gas sensor
Indoor air quality monitoring applications require both high selectivity and sensitivity, which are difficult to reach with solid state gas sensors. An ultra small packed gas chromatographic column
Bananas and Plantains
Bananas and plantains are major fruit crops in the tropics and subtropics, making a vital contribution to the economies of many countries. In the last 15 years, substantial changes have occurred in
Ripening and biochemistry of the fruit
During their growth bananas steadily accumulate starch. First they elongate, then they increase in width. The increase in width continues as long as the fruits are not harvested, so that in section
