The device can be deployed in different applications especially in physical asset, container and fleet management. The software will have the capability to connect with public information sharing platforms such as OBTIS, ezTRACK and EPCglobal network to share and integrate real time logistics and physical asset information.
To share the research achievement of our integrated technologies and applications with the public and the industries, a showcase was opened for public viewing and displayed. Moreover, the forthcoming activity (i.e. workshop) was promoted to the industry and the membership scheme is established to comprise people or organizations from various industries for commercialization and technology transfer.
