FedEx SenseAware combines a GPS sensor with a Web-based collaboration platform to let customers shipping sensitive, high-value goods know not just where their packages are, but what conditions they've endured.

Customers put the SenseAware device in a FedEx package, and it provides near real-time data on the vital statistics of the contents, including location, temperature, and when it was opened or exposed to light.
