RFID tag-based delivery networks cut CO2


This is the kind of news we like to hear: One of Japan’s major universities has come up with a system that uses RFID tags to closely monitor the flow of materials involved in a construction project in an attempt to minimize the number of truck journeys needed in their delivery and, thus, carbon dioxide emissions.

Waseda university, working with construction firms, has used the tags to allow for an efficient delivery model, wherein companies share a delivery network, which has resulted in CO2 emissions associated with the projects involved falling by almost a quarter.
