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

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
