Temperature sensors for 3,000 freight wagons
Effective December 2020, the German rail wagon hire company VTG will deploy temperature sensors developed by the Swiss company Nexxiot in order to assure a seamless monitoring of the condition of high-quality, temperature sensitive goods and transmit information digitally in real time.
To this end, 3,000 freight wagons will be equipped with sensors that can measure the temperature of the tank, the heating system and the outlet. The generated data will be consolidated and processed in the Nexxiot connect cloud.
Detailed evaluations and further analyses will be made available to the customers on VTG's traigo platform. If changes in the temperatures occur, the system will send a notification to all authorised parties involved in the transport. (ben)
