Short Information of the Project »Daedalus«
A purely satellite-based solution is only partially suitable for most tracking systems, as the high demand for electricity is a great impairment to the service life. The short maintenance intervals and/or the very large batteries required limit user acceptance and prevent successful commercial use.
Alternative systems based only on RFID technologies or energy-saving active communication solutions are restricted by the fact that their functionality is generally limited to a narrow geographical area.
The aim of the »Daedalus« Project is therefore to find a solution that combines the benefits of satellite-based and RFID solutions, thus compensating for the disadvantages of each.
