The internet of things (IoT) is becoming a mainstream technology in leveraging machine-to-machine (M2M) manufacturing for anytime, anywhere and any type of asset tracking.
According to TE Connectivity, smart tracking technology needs always-on connectivity for insights on asset locations, temperature, functionality or other metrics in order to track what is being sent reliably anywhere in the world.
Additionally, long-lasting, future-proof connectivity is needed for tracked devices to operate in the field for years including long-lasting battery life. Remote updates are also needed to address large fleets in diverse locations so devices can work optimally and send data as expected.
The infographic details some of the benefits and applications that are involved in IoT solutions for smart tracking.
