In a time of increasing competition, cost pressure and customer demands, the use of innovative tracking technologies is gaining more and more importance. However, introducing a tracking system tends to involve very high capital expenditure and a complicated installation process.
Wireless Smart Items (WiSmIts) are intelligent wireless sensor nodes (also known as "tags" or "transceivers") that are attached to objects to be tracked. These small, robust transceiver platforms are detected and located by a receiving antenna. The sensor data collected is then wirelessly communicated.
