OVERVIEW
RMONI was facing temperature monitoring challenges in a cold chain business. A cold chain must be established and maintained to ensure goods have been properly refrigerated during every step of the process, making temperature monitoring a critical business function. Manually registration practice can be very costly, labor intensive and prone to mistake.
RMONI provides wireless remote monitoring of crucial control parameters including a solution for temperature monitoring during transport and storage of food products and pharmaceutical goods. RMONI has more than 1,500 installations in Europe and 10,000 sensors online.
RMONI created a complete solution with hardware, wireless sensors deployed with XBee modules, gateways and Sensor2Web application. The modules collect and pass sensor data to a centralized gateway. The gateway packages and sends the data to the cloud. With Sensor2Web application, RMONI customers can view data in real-time on a dashboard, create reports to provide to regulatory authorities and receive alerts sent via email and SMS messages.

Temperature data
IOT
Emerging (technology has been on the market for >2 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Real-time Tracking - The status of assets can be identified in near real-time.
Status Alert - Problems are indicated to line operators when the condition of a device or associated equipment changes beyond predetermined limits.
Data Aggregation - Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
The solution has decreased supermarket food waste by 10%.
TECHNOLOGY
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
