Wavetrend Technologies, a manufacturer of active RFID applications, has released GlobalEyes, a new global tracking solution that incorporates multiple communications and tracking technologies with a software management suite. GlobalEyes is designed to monitor and track assets, people, and vehicles across the globe. It delivers real-time visibility and intelligence on the location, condition, status, and other important information of high-value assets. This capability makes it suitable for monitoring shipping containers and for tracking assets such as vehicles, cargo ships, and railcars.
GlobalEyes uses multiple modes of two-way communications, including active RFID, general packet radio service (GPRS), satellite, global positioning system (GPS), global system for mobile communications (GSM), and ZigBee wireless mesh networks. These communications are combined with a Web-based information management bureau that offers remote and real-time visibility in critical applications. GlobalEyes provides a completely mobile reader infrastructure and therefore does not require the use of a fixed reader.
By utilizing continuous data transmissions generated by multiple sources, GlobalEyes overcomes the limitations inherent in traditional supply chain infrastructures that rely solely on fixed readers to gather data. The complementary technologies incorporated into GlobalEyes provide greater visibility of assets in transit.
GlobalEyes is the result of a partnership between Wavetrend and System Planning Corp. (SPC). The GlobalEyes solution combines Wavetrend's portfolio of active RFID products with the capabilities of System Planning Corp.'s asset tracking and condition monitoring system.
