1. , a kind of system of object of the logistics network motion that is used to monitor the carrier by having a plurality of analyzing spots, described object is with to follow the tracks of number related to help the object of tracking by described logistics network, and described system comprises:

  • A plurality of scanister are used for producing first tracking data by each the analyzing spot scanning of a plurality of analyzing spots in the logistics network and the label of described object association;

    Wireless device physically with described object association, is configured to described wireless device to send the signal that comprises the device identification that is used for identifying uniquely described device;

    A plurality of WAPs, be used for receiving described signal from described wireless device, and, generation is used to be identified at second tracking data of the described wireless device when receiving described signal and the position of described physically related object, and described second tracking data is to the position of small part based on each the described WAP that receives described signal;

    Database is used to store and the data of described object by the motion association of described logistics network;

    AndCPU (central processing unit), itself and described a plurality of scanister, described a plurality of WAPs and described database communication are configured to described CPU (central processing unit);

    Receive described first tracking data from described a plurality of scanister;

    Receive described second tracking data from described a plurality of WAPs;

    AndDescribed first tracking data and described second tracking data are stored in the described database with in described device identification and the described tracking number at least one relatedly,Thus, the described first and second tracking data combinations are with by providing at least two mechanism that independently are used to check the whereabouts of described object in described logistics network that other supervision of booster stage to described object is provided.
