Sensefinity – Everything Connects will provide its advanced IoT technology to track and monitor containers during transportation, while COBS – Container Overboard System will leverage its expertise in maritime logistics around overboard containers problem, further developing a solution that keep afloat fallen containers and collaborate with Sensefinity – Everything Connects to increase the potential of their products.
Sensefinity´s IoT technology enables real-time monitoring of container location, temperature, humidity, and other critical parameters. It also includes GPS, cellular, and satellite connectivity, which allows for seamless tracking even in remote areas. The data collected by Sensefinity’s devices will be integrated with COBS to enable quick mitigation actions and retrieval of fallen containers.
