Identiv Intros Temperature-Datalogging Solution for Cold-Chain Management

Identiv announced the next generation of its uTrust Sense Temperature Tracker solution. This Internet of Things-based solution includes a secure, portable smart sensor label that tracks and stores temperature readings. It can be read locally by Near Field Communication (NFC) readers, including mobile devices, and can be uploaded to the internet for analysis.

The self-adhesive uTrust Sense Temperature Tracker datalogger solution is suitable for monitoring and tracking temperature-sensitive products for cold-chain applications, smart packaging, medical products and pharmaceutical logistics, the firm reports, as well as for other fragile goods. The tag's temperature accuracy makes it suitable for use with perishable goods, the company adds, including fresh fish, caviar, wine, blood, vaccines and flowers, thereby protecting product and brand integrity.

Identiv's uTrust Sense Temperature Tracker
Identiv's solution addresses the needs of businesses requiring temperature control during transportation vis air, insulated van or refrigerated container. uTrust Sense Temperature Tracker is secured by a cryptographic algorithm to protect the integrity of each temperature measurement, and the record transmission to the cloud platform is secured to prevent unauthorized entities from altering measurements.

"Identiv's uTrust Sense Temperature Tracker is an unrivaled solution addressing the growing challenges in the IoT concerning data integrity and originality," said Stephane Ardiley, Identiv's director of product management, in a prepared statement. "This intelligent tracking device delivers an effective and secure end-to-end solution for tracking the temperature of any goods."

A demonstration kit featuring two tags and access to the Android mobile app and cloud platform for data analytics is available at smartlabeldemo.com.
