The Internet of Things (IoT) goes beyond gadgets

VaccineAs we shared in a previous blog about all the great things that the Internet of Things technology has given us, home security, fitness apps, and smart farming, it is now being considered to help distribute the COVID-19 vaccines. RFID Journal, which reports on anything in the world of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and also how the Internet of Technology (IoT) may be the right choice to track shipments of the vaccines within the supply chain.

“When it comes to the development, shipping and distribution of the vaccines, there are a few key challenges that pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, logistics service providers and distributors must be mindful of to ensure the vaccines’ safe dispersal: tracking shipments to ensure their timely arrival, as well as proper temperature control to make sure they will be safely distributed. The worldwide distribution of the vaccines…is putting a spotlight on how the Internet of Things (IoT)-based sensor technologies can help to enable a challenging supply chain process.”

The distribution of the vaccine has highlighted the importance of some vital shipping needs like temperature control which must be highly accurate during transit as well as while in storage at healthcare facilities. The use of IoT-enabled sensors can help ensure the quality of a product, such as a vaccine and minimize the risk of human error.

In this way, the utilization of IoT may open the doors for additional pharmaceutical and other product distribution solutions, and Pragmatyxs is ready to help businesses innovate for their futures.
