Yard Mapper
Virginia Tech
Distribution centers across the U.S. lose track of semi-truck trailers in their holding yards. In fact, many distribution centers can spend $1,000 per trailer per year trying to keep track of the trailers. Yard Mapper places Bluetooth beacons on trailers to monitor the location of the trailers in the holding yard. Using Yard Mapper, distribution centers can save $900 per trailer per year.
