Meet MOST, a tracking device placed in shipping containers or transportation vehicles that measures changes in temperature, humidity and light.
Exporters had no way of tracking their goods and perishables while in transit. The transportation of perishables is a crucial component that supports large export industries all over the world. The problem for owners is that once containers are locked and loaded for shipping, they have no way of tracking what happens to the goods in transit, yet they foot the bill for damages, theft and contamination until the shipment reaches its destination. The founders of MOST realised that the Internet of Things could solve this multi billion-dollar uncertainty.
Working with our client in Sweden, BAS ITG, MOST needed a sensor-software and hardware platform to transmit the data from the tracking device to a central repository.
Design mock-ups of key website components are created. The final designs are presented as static images, providing a representation of the final look and feel of the project to the client before development commences.
We overhauled the original backend and CMS, extracting the information methodically and displaying it via a user-friendly interface. Our team also created instant tracking facilities, set up alert systems as well as user credential processes. We simplified the complex reporting systems by breaking each component down to highlight the nature of each route, the unique container identification number, trip duration and routes traveled. Each device is fitted with a sim card so that when the device is out of range, the data can still be collated, recorded and transmitted once signal is restored. We also implemented SMS notifications so that owners receive alerts if the temperature, light or humidity changes beyond an acceptable range. Moreover, MOST's clientele are able to track all of their shipments simultaneously from one dashboard giving them access to important information about their goods in transit, including its location at any point throughout the journey.
Quality Assurance takes place by a dedicated tester using the test cases defined during the analysis process. These test cases will be used in the final testing and QA phases.
On completion of the project the website deployed to the server.
