Fraunhofer IFF shows possibilities, basics, and use cases for LoRa in logistics
Logistics companies worldwide need a way of permanently monitoring location and condition of freight items. At RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow, the Fraunhofer IFF researchers present a LoRaWAN solution tested successfully at the Leipzig-Halle airport.
Location and condition monitoring without changing batteries for years!
Logistics needs wireless technology that costs little, offers high range and a long lifespan. The requirements of the Leipzig-Halle airport: maintenance-free, energy-efficient continuous service – without changing batteries for years. Through an IoT box mounted to the container or dolly, the freight item's position, temperature, humidity, shock, opening or closing can be measured seamlessly.

“RFID, BLE, or NFC dataloggers only enable a readout at the end of the journey. GSM, GPS, and Wi-Fi are too energy intensive. LoRaWAN has none of these issues and boasts several benefits for users. LoRaWAN only exists since 2015, but it has already led to a solutions race in logistics.” - Hon.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Richter, Manager, Material Handling Engineering und Systeme, Fraunhofer IFF
