Objects connected to the Internet:
In which Objects connected to the internet is technology Objects communicate with each other through cloud based GPS (Global Positioning System), radio frequency (RFID) and the company with which they transmit their location. It also monitor different environmental factors & temperature change. With the help of this there are less possibilities of good loss and damage. Using this system, the goods destined for different locations of each object in a warehouse and the identification of goods transported in real time are sent to the central office.
It allows increased visibility of transportation and a managed flow of goods in the supply chain which further allows faster sending of good. So, using this will increase customer satisfaction.
