Smart Supply Chain Logistics
随着物联网（IoT）技术和信息物理系统 (CPS) 的快速发展，机器人已在众多行业中得到广泛应用。工业机器人不仅常见于电子、汽车、化工等行业，也越来越多地用于家庭、酒店、餐厅等环境中的服务功能。近年来，全球服务机器人技术取得了长足的进步和发展，在家庭、教育、公共服务、医疗等领域实现了一系列突破性的应用，为创造更好的生活和进一步提高生产效率奠定了基础。
Asset tracking is one of the most widely deployed Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to Juniper Research, there will be a 27% increase in asset tracking usage over the next five years, growing from 90 million in 2020 to 114 million by 2025. With this increase, IoT solutions need to enable the efficient and reliable monitoring of assets as they move through the production cycle, and often throughout large warehouses and campuses. Having access to reliable location data is increasingly valuable to production managers, reducing the potential for assets to be misplaced or lost entirely during their journey.
Postal delivery companies face a highly competitive landscape as customer expectations have evolved. The demand for fast delivery times, low prices and exceptional service has driven rapid innovation: new solutions are needed in order to meet the needs of smart cities worldwide. Postal companies must also reach customers in rural areas, which are often much more difficult to serve due to inaccessibility and lack of infrastructure able to handle communication demands. Rural postal customers also tend to be older, which can present technological literacy issues.
With governments increasingly recognizing the need to control energy consumption and reduce waste, the requirement to make utilities smart is not only desirable, but also the law in many countries. Although the needs of electricity, gas and water utilities are different and highly specific, each utility type requires similar foundational technologies in terms of smart devices, connectivity and data processing.

资产追踪是物联网 (IoT) 部署最广泛的应用之一。到 2025 年，物联网对工厂、零售场所、工作场所、办公室和家庭的总体经济影响可能高达 6.3 万亿美元， according to McKinsey Global. A variety of industries, including home and building, healthcare, agriculture, and food services in addition to the industrial and logistics markets, are investing in smarter technologies to replace siloed legacy systems with automated asset management solutions. Many existing geolocation applications are power hungry and require multiple devices, software and services from multiple vendors, resulting in increased complexity and cost.
资产追踪是物联网 (IoT) 最有前途的应用之一。运输、物流、医疗保健和食品服务等各个行业都在投资更智能的技术，用自动化资产管理解决方案取代孤立的传统系统。
IHS Markit 预测，到 2023 年，所有低功耗广域网 (LPWAN) 将有多达 43% 基于 Semtech 的 LoRa® 器件和 LoRaWAN® 协议*。截至 2019 年 12 月，全球已部署超过五十万个支持 LoRa 的网关，支持 1.35 亿个基于 LoRa 的终端节点**。随着物联网 (IoT) 解决方案的全球采用以及支持 LoRa 的应用的市场份额不断增长，将越来越难以找到无法从任何互联器件中受益的业务部门。新的 LoRa 用例定期发布，全球 LoRaWAN 网络部署（公共或私有）的数量不断增加，似乎对这些应用的唯一限制就是开发人员和系统集成商解决当今现实世界业务挑战的想象力。
