OxLoc delivering solutions for Un-Powered Assets

18.03.2003


OxLoc Ltd today announced the launch of the Asset Alert for monitoring condition and location of goods in transit and advising the customer of any problems by a text or e-mail alert. The autonomous tag is self powered with its own battery and can be located easily on an asset or container without expensive installation.



Asset Alert is aimed at Intermodel transportation, containers and wagons and uses a number of external sensors to detect conditions such as temperature, relative humidity and can even record vibration and impact. “By working within specific industry sectors, OxLoc has been able to ensure that their solution is developed to meet the industry needs - particularly focusing on portability, external sensor support, low power consumption and data retrieval” said Keith Dobson, OxLoc’s CEO.

To extend their reach, OxLoc have extended the system to include tri-band operation for coverage across the US. “ OxLoc believe that this new device will open up new thinking and will provide solutions to reduce operating costs and provide value added services to the customers of transportation companies” said Susan Fox OxLoc’s Marketing Manager.


OxLoc believe that the success of the Asset Alert will result from customisation to individual business needs and they are already in discussion with major logistics and transportation companies. The modular design of the product has allowed flexibility across a range of cargo business models on a global basis. Knowing what is happening and where it is happening will soon become a necessary requirement for both transportation and shipping companies and for their customers. Knowing what is happening to goods inside the box rather than only knowing about the box is the future for the OxLoc Asset Alert

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
