Abstract [en]

Interactive packaging is an emerging research area in recent years. It brings people convenient and smart lives, reduces consumption of traditional packaging materials and direct or indirect labor costs as well. Being integrated in interactive packaging, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology becomes one of the most proactive development enablers. In this paper, an interactive and intelligent packaging solution integrating passive RFID system and Controlled Delamination Material (CDM) is given at first. Package opening action is electrically controlled by the RFID system. CDM is primarily used in aerospace applications in the past and the conductor/adhesive joint can be easily opened by applying a little electric power on to the material. Some related works will be shown about the electrochemical characteristics of CDM in order to facilitate the system design. A demonstration system was developed and the test results have proved feasibility of the solution and shown the potential of low cost for mass production. Based on this solution, an interactive medication package for pervasive healthcare is further developed, using EPCglobal Gen2 RFID technology. It will make the medication being accessible for patient only at the prescribed dose and time, and medication taking information will be delivered as well. Such medication package will not only give unprecedented high patient compliance, but also improve the communication between patients and healthcare staffs.

Abstract [en]

   An intelligent and interactive package can interact with people smartly, safely and friendly. It involves many technologies such as electronics, optics, biologic, magnetics and electro-mechanics. By combined with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), intelligent and interactive packaging technology has been an emerging and global research topic over the years.

   In this thesis, a new technology, named Controlled Delamination Material (CDM), is introduced. It was primarily used in aerospace applications in the past and further developed by Stora Enso AB. A CDM product can delaminate easily in a controlled way by the use of electrical current. This concept opens up many interesting application possibilities for the traditional packaging industry. In order to understand the delamination mechanism, some related work on the electrochemical characteristics of the material showed the possibility to facilitate the interactive packaging system design.

   A paper-based package which is integrated with RFID system and CDM is presented to realize an intelligent and interactive system. It can be opened automatically through a finger touch. The opening action is controlled electrically by RFID system. The test results of the demonstration have proved feasibility of the solution and shown the potential for mass production.

    Following this solution, an interactive pharmaceutical package for pervasive healthcare is proposed by using EPCglobal Gen2 RFID technology. A Gen2 RFID system significantly increases the efficiency of information exchange, and reduces the medication error rate and the possibility of sale counterfeit drugs. It makes the medication accessible for patient only at the prescribed dose and time, and at the same time, the information for the action of taking medication will be delivered to the doctor as well. Such interactive pharmaceutical package not only gives unprecedented high patient compliance, but also improves the communication between patients and healthcare staffs.

    By integrating WSN with various bio-chemical sensors, in addition to temperature and moisture sensors, more kinds of information can be involved in the intelligent and interactive packaging communication system. It enhances the functionalities of the package such as rotecting the integrity and effectiveness of product, providing safety information details, and being child resistance, senior friendliness

Abstract [en]

The emerging technology breakthrough of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) is expected to offer promising solutions for food supply chain (FSC) and in-home healthcare (IHH), which may significantly contribute to human health and well-being. In this thesis, we have investigated the technologies and architectures of the IoT for these two applications as so-called Food-IoT and Health-IoT respectively. We intend to resolve a series of research problems about the WSN architectures, device architectures and system integration architectures. To reduce the time-to-market and risk of failure, business aspects are taken into account more than before in the early stage of technology development because the technologies and applications of IoT are both immature today.

The challenges about enabling devices that we have addressed include: the WSN mobility and wide area deployment, efficient data compression in resource-limited wireless sensor devices, reliable communication protocol stack architecture, and integration of acting capacity to the low cost intelligent and interactive packaging (I2Pack). Correspondingly, the WAN-SAN coherent architecture of WSN, the RTOS-based and multiprocessor friendly stack architecture, the content-extraction based data compression algorithm, and the CDM-based I2Pack solution are proposed and demonstrated.

At the system level, we have addressed the challenges about effective integration of scattered devices and technologies, including EIS and information integration architectures such as shelf-life prediction and real-time supply chain re-planning for the Food-IoT, and device and service integration architectures for the Health-IoT. Additionally, we have also addressed some challenges at the top business level, including the Value Chain Models and Value Proposition of the Food-IoT, and the cooperative ecosystem model of the Health-IoT. These findings are generic and not dependent on our proprietary technologies and devices.

To be more generalized, we have demonstrated an effective research approach, the so-called Business-Technology Co-Design (BTCD),  to resolve an essential challenge in nowadays research on the IoT -- the lack of alignment of basic technology and practical business requirements. We have shown its effectiveness by our design practice. It could be an instructive example of “the change of mindset” which is essential for the IoT research in the future.
