Wiliot recently announced the addition of humidity sensing to its Visibility Platform, enabling users to sense and analyze humidity levels of individual products, in real-time, throughout the supply chain. The company’s Visibility Platform already includes existing temperature, location, and carbon emissions sensing capabilities.
The new humidity sensing capabilities makes it possible for food companies to better ensure the safety, integrity, freshness, and sustainability of moisture-sensitive products, end-to-end and at large scale.
The Wiliot Visibility Platform connects the digital and physical worlds through the Wiliot Cloud and Wiliot Internet of Things (IoT) Pixels, which are low-cost, self-powered, mass-manufactured postage stamp-sized compute devices affixed to products and packaging. IoT Pixels continuously and automatically transmit data to the Wiliot Cloud via standard Bluetooth devices, greatly reducing the staffing and operational cost of traditional tracking methodologies, while also reducing error rates, waste, incorrect shipments, mispicks, and out-of-stocks.
With this latest launch, Wiliot engineers have now introduced to IoT Pixels a tiny membrane that detects humidity in the air. When an IoT Pixel is exposed to different humidity levels, the information is relayed wirelessly to the Wiliot Cloud. In the cloud, this humidity data is combined with temperature and location data to generate insights and timely alerts for staff that can better optimize supply chain operations.
