Baoneng Cold Storage Warehouse Industrial IoT Solution

As consumers worldwide become more health-conscious and demonstrate the value of consuming fresh, healthy, and diverse, food and beverage companies pay more attention to securing their global product chains by applying the food traceability system for strict and intelligent management of products in order to gain customer trust. Here we provide a typical use case of how Seeed Studio SenseCAP LoRaWAN sensors and gateways play a role in assisting the food supply chain management in Baoneng Cold Storage Warehouse monitoring the main environmental parameters. The warehouse is located in Shenzhen, China.

Food traceability is able to follow the storage, transportation, and movement of food products and their ingredients through all parts of its international supply chain. It is crucial to document the processing and distribution of commodities to reduce possible risks to customers’ health. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, cold chain transportation is a potential path of transmission of the virus. Without a clear mind of where the source of the virus comes from could lift up difficulties in efficiently prevent the wide-spreading of the virus. Efficient food traceability helps companies, governments, and institutions rapidly determine the source of the product and where contamination might happen. And environmental data coming from the location where food and beverage placed gives valuable evidence of the condition of products.

Therefore, sensors are necessities for monitoring the environmental conditions of where food products are located. By providing precise parameters, sensors help storage managers make accurate estimation and prediction on products’ quality and remove the problematic commodities from the marketplace once something goes wrong.

Seeed Studio works with Baoneng on a “food tracking” project in its storage warehouse to ensure the surrounding environment is suitable for storing products. This project secures the products in the agriculture, food, and health industry with commodity tracking technology, Seeed environmental monitoring end nodes, and the construction of an application system. To provide the optimized environment and best condition for food commodities (i.e., salmon) in its cold storage warehouse, Baoneng applies Seeed environmental monitoring solution in this project.

About SenseCAP:

SenseCAP is a series of industrial IoT products. Its LoRaWAN version is based on LoRaWAN protocol and deployable worldwide with multiple ISM bands. SenseCAP is encapsulated in an IP66 enclosure, making it applicable in outdoor remote sensing scenarios such as Smart Farming, Smart City, and other IoT applications that need low-power, long-distance, and long-term data collection. If you have any questions, feel free to email us.

Challenge or problem: Consumers worldwide become more health-conscious and demonstrate the value of consuming fresh, healthy, and diverse, food and beverage companies pay more attention to securing their global product chains by applying the food traceability system for strict and intelligent management of products in order to gain customer trust.
Solution: 1. SenseCAP collects the parameters of air temperature and humidity, CO2, and Barometric Pressure and wirelessly transfer data to the center gateway, which assists the factory manager to remotely control the parameters of the factory. 2. As data transmitted to the cloud from gateway and sensors, managers only have to review and examine the environmental condition with the use of the computer, rather than rambling around the storage warehouse with considerable size and severe conditions. This helps reduce troublesome, lower the cost significantly and improve the efficiency of management. 3. SenseCAP supports LoRaWAN technology, which ensures wireless sensors deployed in the warehouse to work over long distances and with low power consumption while robust enough to stand in severe conditions for years. 4. Only one gateway deployed is needed to connect with hundreds of sensors deployed in multiple warehouses, and the actual transmission distance is up to 2 km with obstacles. Managers can obtain data from SenseCAP LoRaWAN sensors every 5 mins. And the battery of SenseCAP has a comparatively long lifespan: the average lifespan of LoRaWAN sensors varies from 3 to 8 years.
Result: By working with Seeed Studio on this Baoneng "food tracking" project in its storage warehouse, we have ensured that the surrounding environment is suitable for storing products. This project has secured the products in the agriculture, food, and health industry with commodity tracking technology, Seeed environmental monitoring end nodes, and the construction of an application system. To provide the optimized environment and best condition for food commodities (i.e., salmon) in its cold storage warehouse, Baoneng has applied Seeed environmental monitoring solution.
