It is common to determine the position of goods via GPS in the delivery process, however the conditions of specific commodities are insufficiently tracked. Advances in communication technologies combined with development of low energy sensors offer several new possibilities in continuous online monitoring. To overcome the aforementioned problems, we investigated the delivery process in the field of roadworks. In this field there are numerous opportunities into which IoT can be implemented. For that reason we developed an innovative monitoring system concept for the supply chain of tarmac. The prototype enables the wireless transmission of logged temperature data which are coming from several sensors placed at certain positions on the trailer.
