SenseAware® powered by FedEx is a tracking and monitoring service integrated with a powerful web-based application that provides real-time data about customer shipments.
It is so comprehensive that you can track vital statistics such as current location, temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity and light sensitivity.
Sense Aware service is valuable for companies who ship high-value, highly sensitive products like medicines, art, or artisanal chocolate!
Yesterday was the first day of Race Across America, aka the “World’s Toughest Bicycle Race”.
The Ohio CycleWorks bike team is sponsored by FedEx Custom Critical, and their statistics are being tracked using SenseAware!
I love the idea of bicycle races, but I don’t think the excitement of the races translates very well to broadcast television. This year, thanks to SenseAware, you can enjoy the progress of the race in real time. Woot!
I logged into SenseAware and was thrilled to see the weather details of where the team was that day, and the GPS location of the team.
The race kicked off on Oceanside, CA, and I personally think that 81.1 degrees sounds like pretty decent biking weather, but maybe that 44% humidity made for a super muggy day!

A SenseAware device will travel with the team throughout the entire race, which started yesterday and ends in Annapolis, Maryland between June 21-25.
This team is racing to raise money for the Akron Children’s Hospital.
