Towards the era of industry 4.0, there has been increasing interest in developing a safer and more efficient railway transport through the internet of things (IoT) based monitoring. In IoT based monitoring systems, wireless communication technologies inevitably play an important role in bridging data from sensors to the internet. This paper presents an experimental study of sensor and wireless communication technologies for a novel freight monitoring, tracking and tracing system. The study involves implementations of, and experimental investigations on, Bluetooth and radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies for condition monitoring and tracking of freight on a rail vehicle. System architectures, implementations, and performance aspects of Bluetooth and RFID, such as energy consumption, range, and reliability, are discussed in the paper.
