Zatar – Cold Chain Avatar

The Cold Chain Avatar would be used for purposes of monitoring a temperature controlled supply chain, commonly used for food and pharmaceuticals, the avatar would alert/report back any temperature break or interruption in the chain during the logistics cycle that could cause the supply to be ruined.

The avatar is unique in that it is not 1:1 which is common for avatars in Zatar. 1:1 meaning 1 device per avatar. This avatar would be considered a “compound” avatar due to the many devices involved (GPS, temp sensor, mobile gateway) and the technology behind making the multiple devices communicate amongst themselves and the Zatar cloud.

The design for the avatar illustrates the capability of the application should the compound avatar be implemented as well as the advantages of reporting data from multiple streams surfaced in one view.
