Abstract—STAPID is a secured asset tracking pilot device for monitoring and tracking of transported assets. This paper presents a container security and monitoring device based on WCDMA (wideband code division multiple access) communication between an e-seal mounted on the container and a management server that oversees the freight movement process. This proposal consists of: real time communication capability on the asset location during transportation; secure mechanism to prevent unauthorized removal; secure hardware structure against tampering; and status-of-the-art visualization techniques for real time monitoring with graphical information. STAPID device is designed to send frequent messages to the end-users about their containers status and any shock beyond a set level that may alert customers about any breach or possible theft to their valuable goods.

Index Terms—transportation logistic, RFID identification, container security, WCDMA communication
