QStamp® is a smart sensor in a flexible substrate, which in a passive way, without any source of battery, can wirelessly measure external variables such as Temperature, Light, Humidity and Force/Pressure.
Its sticky like application allows QStamp® to be easily used on any package or material helping, for example, food retailers, consumers and restaurant owners to better manage their food products.
These two graphics are displaying real time readings that are being captured by the QStamp® on our lab.
QStamp® can be applied as simple as a postage stamp or as any product label
You can add information to our internal chip such as an ID and/or a time-stamp.
Activation starts as you wish, just use our hardware or even your smartphone.
According to the QStamp® version you can measure one variable or more.
You can continuously monitoring QStamp® at a time-step as low as 500 ms.
Data is sent to our remote reader supported in a cloud based platform.
Logistics processes, comprising product distribution and sale, are characterized by a complex network of events which are orchestrated towards minimal product loss.
Within the current types of commercialized products by a Food Retail Company (which the real name is maintained in secrecy due to a current non-disclosure agreement) aims to implement a new protocol for distribution activities and real-time temperature monitoring to fulfill the cold chain requirements.
The Food Retail Company has a strong interest in better monitoring a specific perishable food type of Product.
In this case-study, we demonstrate how QStamp® can be used as an identification tool for receiving and shipping activities, as well as how it can be used as a temperature data logger for traceability purposes and efficient product recall.
QStamp® was tested as an automatic identification and data capture platform for supply chain management (SCM), offering state-of-the-art traceability and labelling standards known as EPCglobal network.
In this case-study, QStamp® compatibility with the client’s RFID infrastructure was also tested. The business process was initially divided in transportation, warehousing and 'on shelf' periods.
The Food Retail Company required as fundamental data: Product origin/producer; ID of the Product; ID of the delivery document; Expiration date; Date & time of transportation, beginning and duration; Date & time of warehousing, beginning and duration; Date & time of 'on shelf' selling period, beginning and duration; and temperature data regarding all business process stages.
The Food Retail Company intended to monitor several information of a perishable food Product. In this case study, we have demonstrated that it is possible to easily apply QStamp® under any product label at the producer, to manage origin/producer, ID of delivery document and expiration date, as well as continuously measure temperature during the entire process. All data is saved in a cloud and it can be access, for example, in a smartphone or in our hardware. Therefore, QStamp® can be used as an identification tool for receiving and shipping activities, as a temperature data logger for traceability purposes and efficient product recall.
