UTILIZATION OF IoTs FOR MONITORING OF GOODS DELIVERY
The development of computer technology has been so rapid, encouraging authors to take advantage of these developments to conduct research on monitoring the entire fleet of vehicles used to deliver and pick up goods in a business company. Monitoring is seen as very important to ensure that goods sent or taken to support business processes are carried out according to a predetermined schedule. This is to avoid disruptions in the process of sending or picking up goods that can harm the company or harm consumers. This monitoring device utilizes IoT technology, where every fleet is installed with Arduino microcontrollers, GPRS modules, and GPS modules, where the Arduino microcontroller module will send locations every minute using a GPRS connection to a server inside the company, then the server will record all record the location of the existing fleet of vehicles. With the travel records of the entire fleet, it will be easier for the company to monitor and provide assistance to the process of sending or picking up goods in the event of disturbances in the middle of the trip. The author's server side application utilizes open source applications, namely mysql database, apache web server, and PHP programming language.
