This paper proposes an IOT-based scheme to solve the problems of long transportation time, low transparency degree and high operation costs for logistics vehicle monitoring and trackingsystem. At the vehicle terminal we adopt integrated sensor techniques with SunSPOT platform. It integrates the information of temperature, humidity, light intensity and so on to make real-time and multi-dimensional control for rapid response and locating. All the collected parameters or audio-video information can be uploaded and sent to the monitoring centre via 6LoWPAN. For the controlling centre, we provide the processes of design and implementation for key modules. The scheme in this paper is proved to offer defamation and informatization for vehicle transportation, with stowage optimization of vehicles and effective monitoring control.
