    Is the packing box right for my product?

The sensor solutions developed by CRATUS provides you information on what happened between the time your shipment has been sent and the time it is received.  By monitoring fragile, perishable, temperature sensitive, even everyday items during shipping, storage all the way to secure delivery, CRATUS is the lighthouse for the shipping lanes. Temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, gas, physical shock, impact, stacking orientation, and inclination (i.e. to sense spill) provides information on the health of the goods inside the parcels, secondary and tertiary packaging.


Temperature monitoring

Temperature monitoring for sensitive and perishable assets provides the user the complete visibility to the log of temperature profiles and critical metrics based on the nature of the product being monitored. User has access to the conditions under which time and temperature sensitive (TTS) materials such as pharmaceuticals, biological specimens and prepreg materials are shipped and stored.

Impact analytics

Impact analytics for fragile and valuable shipments such as high precision instruments, brittle materials, works of art, livestock or volatile chemicals such as biological samples need to be transported without being subjected to impact. But is this guaranteed during transport? CRATUS provides innovative impact monitoring system that provides complete information and the analytics of the impacts experienced during transit.

Shock monitoring sensors and services

Shock monitoring sensors and services identify the instantaneous mechanical shocks that can damage the products during shipment or warehousing activities. The shock information provided on timeline makes A/B testing possible between service providers such as logistics operators and warehouses.

Humidity monitoring

Humidity monitoring during shipment or storage using CRATUS sensors help monitoring the potential adverse outcomes in the condition of assets especially but not limited to storage in high humidity environments.

Barometric pressure monitoring

Barometric pressure monitoring is vital when it comes to over the air and high altitude transport. Our Barometric Pressure Monitoring System would enable you to monitor performance of packaging especially air tight packaging.

Air quality monitoring

Air quality monitoring inside the packaging for food, pharmaceuticals and other medical products provides insights on packaging performance, spills and bursts.

Inclination or shipping orientation

One of the most common examples of mishandling is the orientation the package is shipped or stored. Have you ever noticed the marking on the side of the package “This side up”? We often come across packages which are being shipped or stored with those arrows pointing to a direction which is not quite “UP”.

Mobile App

CRATUS provides iOS and Android based mobile application to configure monitoring parameters and receive the data log. Mobile app links sensors to the cloud for data storage and analytics.

Tamper detection

Valuables such as Pharmaceuticals or archeological artifacts can get replaced easily during transit. CRATUS tamper monitoring system can easily detect if the box was tampered during shipping.

Data Acquisition Platforms for Developers

BlueBrain® Edge Processing Unit

BlueBrain® is a complete wireless sensor data acquisition and collection (telemetry) unit for prototyping, end product development or custom OEM applications.

BlueBrain® Development Board

BlueBrain® Development Board enables Wireless Industrial Internet-of-Things solutions. The development hardware makes interfacing of BlueBrain® to embedded systems extremely easy with a clean set up.

FOXY Industrial I/O Interface

FOXY connects BlueBrain® to external industrial systems. The collected data from wired interfaces and diverse set of on-board sensors is transmitted to wireless gateways.


The BlueBrain®; IoT, edge processing platform is a complete sensor data acquisition and collection (telemetry) subsystem for end product development or OEM applications. You can deploy products and proofs-of-concept fast with BlueBrain® IoT.  

Key features

  • Over the air (OTA) firmware updates
  • Bluetooth Low Energy communications (powered by Fujitsu Components)
  • Dual processor architecture (CORTEX-M4 CORTEX-M0)
  • Extremely low power operation
  • Embedded sensors (3-Axis Accelerometer, Temperature)
  • GPIO ports for customization
  • Control hundreds of sensor combinations
  • Mobile application (Android, iOS)
  • Development board support (see below)
  • Optional real-time operating system

The IoT subsystem attaches to a standard 32-Pin 1.6” X 0.7” EEPROM style IC socket or equivalent footprint on any mezzanine board. The dual CORTEX processor architecture has extremely low power operation when the main controller is not in operation, and high performance operation with simultaneous wireless data communication when both processors are operating.

BlueBrain® IoT subsystem can connect or control hundreds of sensor combinations and is ideal for developing products for sensing and control applications.  The dual processor architecture can run simple or complicated algorithms and is architected for scaling the application code without needing to reprogram devices through wired interfaces.

Industrial IoT Development System

Industrial Internet-of-Things solutions can help minimize factory inefficiencies beyond improvements within manufacturing processes.  The Internet of Things makes factory automation more efficient in many unique ways.

  • Minimized Loss of Useful Data – The ability of users to manage and analyze data is hampered by the use of proprietary systems and networks. A secure IoT based cloud solution allows users to access and aggregate information from the entire production line and supply chain, leading to improved decision making and process optimization.
  • Integrated Processes – Islands of automation are prevalent today where production lines have good single process data collection, communication, and control but lack a fully integrated approach for the production line and supply chain.  IoT can provide the connectivity, communications, and data management necessary to create a fully optimized system with real time data analytics and decision making capability

CRATUS Technology  provides IoT solutions for Factory Automation and Industrial Control applications.  In order to help our customers bring their products to market faster and at lower cost, we are offering the Industrial IoT Development System.
