The concept of tracking confidential consignments

Robert Waszkowski


The article outlines the concept of an extension for innovative e-system for managing the lifecycle of documents at different levels of sensitivity, including the function of continuous tracking of consignments from one protected zone to another.  The operations of the module are based on the use of RFID tags for the documents. At particular stages of transport, the tags are read to allow automatic identification of the contents of the shipment.  The transported documents are secured in special burglar-proof containers.  Additionally, the containers are equipped with GPS and GLONASS location modules.  The author also described an IT system, which allows to monitor, store and analyze the transport route.
