Asset tracking is the area including versatile applications many of which share the following requirements:
- Objects to be monitored are not that expensive to equip each with a GPS tracker
- Objects are plentiful which makes installing GPS trackers even more impractical
- Objects can be outdoor, so installed devices should be weather-proof
- Objects should be able to report for a long period of time thus requiring a battery-powered device
- Objects are handled by special machinery or vehicles
Hardly any GPS trackers meet the above requirements. However, BLE beacons do.
