Asset Tracking with Particle

Your network of Particle-connected devices can report the location of critical assets and more. It can monitor the state of these assets including temperature, humidity, vibration, or acceleration. This gives comprehensive visibility into the state and progress of your fleet.

Publish device location and environmental data
Prevent lost or spoiled goods through alerts and anomaly detection
Notify when an asset has arrived or been delivered
Respond to status and progress inquiries in real time

How it works

Devices connected to the Particle Cloud publish data, events, and alerts securely through the Particle Cloud. On the other side of the Particle Cloud, your endpoints receive this information for storage, display and analysis. Over-the-air updates let you expand and improve the functionality of your devices.

Asset Tracker Case Study

We had a challenge to create a battery-operated tracker device... We built our hardware using the Particle Electron, and developed the necessary software to transmit position and telemetry data via the Particle Cloud up to every 30 seconds. 

The ease of integration made the Particle Electron and Particle Cloud the best platform to meet our requirements.
