Zebra Technologies Redesigns Food Safety Solution to Better Meet FSMA guidelines


Zebra Technologies Corporation announced that it is collaborating with Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions and ARM to offer a new food safety solution.
With the growing need for compliant Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) solutions, food and beverage manufacturers, produce growers and retailers require digital systems to manage their food safety and compliance needs. The new design extends the capabilities of Zebra’s recently announced smart refrigeration Internet of Things (IoT) solution reference design to mobile supply chain scenarios — providing a simpler architecture, real-time intelligence and electronic records of integrity to meet food safety guidelines.

  • The easy-to-deploy, cloud-based temperature monitoring solution uses wireless sensors, mobile computers and the Zatar Internet of Things (IoT) cloud service.
  • The new solution utilizes Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions’ Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK) and its newly announced Transport Data Logger (TDL) which can monitor various product conditions like temperature, humidity, shock and tilt.
  • The XDK now supports the ARM mbed client. Both the XDK and TDL directly connect to Zebra’s mbed-enabled Zatar IoT cloud service without the need for additional fixed gateway devices.
  • A user-friendly dashboard, real-time alerts and notifications for proactive actions provide companies with a simple, accurate way of monitoring their products.
  • The solution works together with Zebra mobile computers and printers, allowing users to remain mobile and connected to information that will help improve productivity and workflows.
  • The standards-based solution provides investment protection while demonstrating the scalability and interoperability required by enterprise-class IoT solutions that work across the supply chain.
