Development and implementation of an RFID-based solution and an intelligent eSecurity device for physical asset, container and fleet management

Project Period

1 April 2008 – 30 September 2010


RFID and electronic seal (e-seal) technologies can facilitate and enhance current logistics operations, mainly in land border control, customs clearance operations, etc. Currently these kinds of technologies are not matured to support total automation in logistics operations and achieve supply chain visibility.

This project aims to develop an intelligent eSecurity device and the related software modules and middleware, through integration of different logistics enabling technologies, such as RFID, GPS, Bluetooth, wireless network and sensors. This device can be applied in different applications especially in e-seal, cargo control and physical asset management. In additional, an intelligent eSecurity device based software package will be developed for information exchange and automation management. The software will have the capability to connect with public information sharing platforms such as On Board Truck Information System (OBTIS) to share real time logistics and physical asset information. On completion of this project, a cost effective and extensible intelligent eSecurity device and its related management system will be made available to improve logistics automations and achieve real time event reporting, management, analysis, and resource optimization.
