The tracker connects to smartphones via Bluetooth Smart and has applications in cold-chain management, in the agri-food sector, and in life sciences.
Laurent Rousseau, president of Oceasoft, said: “Emerald solves a longstanding temperature-monitoring challenge for the cold-chain industry. With temperature-sensitive goods transported by many different means – notably in trucks, airplanes and refrigerated containers of all kinds – it’s difficult to track temperature conditions and have access to the information during transit.
“Emerald leverages today’s widespread use of smartphones to read temperature data and push it to the Cloud. This provides a point-by-point tracking solution similar to those offered by national and international shipping services, without the need for any heavy infrastructure or dedicated equipment.”
