FedEx is making its move into the Internet of Things with a new package tracking service under the name SenseAware. Using a small device equipped with cellular and GPS radios, an accelerometer, thermometer, and a light sensor, businesses will be able to monitor a package’s condition according to a variety of criteria. Big medical clients can tell if an item has been dropped, opened, or reached an unsafe temperature. GPS and cellular signals are used to pinpoint location. All of this information will allow for real-time decision making and increased efficiency.
