Telecom giant AT&T and Honeywell have collaborated to implement Internet of Things (IoT) technology to aircraft and freight solutions around the world, in order to help companies make decisions and solve problems faster, improve reliability and boost operational efficiency.
The companies said that these IoT solutions will provide shippers with critical information about cargo and also improve aircraft safety, turnaround time and costs.
The solutions will leverage AT&T’s global connectivity and IoT solutions combined with Honeywell’s technology offerings.
The collaboration is intended for countries across the globe, in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, Africa and Australia.
About Honeywell’s Connected Freight & Aircraft solutions:
- Connected Freight is a scalable IoT solution that tracks and monitors critical shipments while they are in transit. Sensor tags attached to assets, pallets or individual packages not only provide location information, but also measure for shock and tilt, humidity, temperature and pressure changes. Logistics providers access a dashboard to receive status alerts and can react quickly to incidents that occur during shipment to prevent damage and loss.
- Connected Aircraft –The AT&T global network connects aircraft services while on the ground. Honeywell’s GoDirect family provides operators, flight crews and maintenance teams with critical information to manage their services and network. These improve fleet management, flight safety, passenger experience, maintenance, flight operations, aircraft turnaround time and costs.
“Our IoT collaboration with AT&T is adding value to the transportation and logistics products we provide our customers across the globe,” said Sameer Agrawal, general manager of IoT Solutions for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. “It gives logistics providers near real-time data insights about their shipments in-transit. And we can unleash a wide array of connected products and services for aircraft operators.”
Commented Joe Mosele, VP – IoT Solutions, Business Development at AT&T, “Honeywell understands the value of connecting assets across its enterprise. Not only is Honeywell using data insights collected from its products to improve its own operations, but it’s also giving that technology to its customers to make informed decisions about their businesses.”
