Smart logistics is an inevitable trend in the development of modern logistics . First of all, the concept of low-carbon, environmental protection, green, and resource recyclability is becoming more and more popular in the society, and it is also increasingly used in various industries. More people pay attention to the concept of green logistics and low-carbon logistics in modern logistics . The realization of organizational forms such as integration and flattening, the rapid advancement of Internet of Things technologies, the introduction of management concepts such as industrial linkage and supply chain, all indicate the integration of information, networking, integration, intelligence, flexibility, and agility. Intelligent logistics with features such as visualization and automation are an inevitable trend and ultimate destination of modern logistics development . Secondly, as the pillar industry of modern circulation, the rapid development of e-commerce and chain operations has led enterprises and consumers to rely more and more on modern logistics. The demand for logistics has been unprecedentedly high. Internet company is a new type of flexible sales model. Through a variety of promotional activities, it is setting off a new wave of online shopping among consumers. However, at this stage, the level of China’s logistics industry is still far from meeting the high demands of e-commerce and consumers on their efficiency and quality. More energy consumption will be caused, more carbon emissions will created, and huge hidden dangers will be brought to the environment. These are greatly deviating from the era of social energy saving for energy saving and emission reduction. The waste of energy and unreasonable allocation of resources also increase the operating costs of logistics companies and reduce corporate profits . The market’s demand for the quantity and quality of logistics, the background of green environmental protection, as well various factors of corporate cost pressures have promoted the development of modern logistics toward intelligence .

Wireless sensor network (WSN) is the result of cross-domain interaction between emerging disciplines and traditional disciplines in the field of information science . The technical development of wireless sensor networks has experienced a transition from smart sensors to wireless smart sensors and eventually developed into three phases of wireless sensor networks . The smart sensor stage embeds a chip with data calculation and processing capabilities into the sensor to enhance and extend the working capability of the sensor node. The wireless smart sensor stage adds wireless communication technology to the sensor node based on the smart sensor. The wireless communication capability extends the antenna-awareness of antennae. Wireless sensor networks introduce network technology into wireless smart sensors, which make the sensor no longer a single sensory unit but a network entity capable of exchanging information and coordinating control. The sensor device and the area can be interconnected through nodes, and the data information can be exchanged. Looking at the development of wireless sensor networks, the development of digital wireless network technology determines its progress and application. In the 1970s, the world’s first network that broadcasts data packets through satellites—ALOHA network—was established at the University of Hawaii in the United States. Packet (also called cluster) broadcasting is introduced into the wireless channel, creating a new era of digital wireless communication. In order to improve the throughput of ALOHA protocol network system, an improved version called S-ALOHA is proposed. The data sent by the user within the network is unified by the common clock. Then a new carrier sense multiple access media access control (MAC) technology is proposed and the detection of random access multiple access protocols began .
3.1 Intelligent logistics system construction algorithm based on wireless sensor technology
The four major core radio-frequency identification technologies of the Internet of Things, namely RFID technology, bar code technology, communication technology, remote sensing technology, and the continuous upgrading of intelligent information equipment, are the core driving forces that really promote the rapid development of the Internet of Things. The continuous innovation and development of the Internet of Things has enabled the Internet of Things to have characteristics such as comprehensiveness of perception, reliability of information hulls, and intelligence of information processing. These features have just provided key technical support for the formation and development of smart logistics to achieve logistics information, digitalization, and intelligence. The currently widely used smart logistics system in China is the machine-to-machine framework of machine-to-machine (M2M), and in the samples of grounded theoretic methods, the application layer, service layer, and sensory layer with more frequent words are used. Such words belong to the scope of the M2M architecture. Therefore, the construction of the smart logistics system for this study is planned to adopt this system architecture and combine the characteristics of Yiwu L Group’s logistics and distribution to complete the construction of a smart logistics system based on the Internet of Things technology.
The role of the sensory layer is mainly to upload information such as user information, employee information, managerial information, and product information that may be involved in various smart logistics platform personnel, goods, and the environment to the database or server through the Internet of Things technology. The sensory layer in the smart logistics system is mainly composed of the data acquisition layer and the access layer. The data acquisition layer mainly uses the sensors, bar codes, and RFID tags in the Internet of Things technology to capture the information of items under the line to the mobile device or the personal computer (PC) through sensor technology, barcode recognition technology, and radio-frequency identification technology. Then, through the network upload function in the access layer, the network, such as a mobile network, a wireless network, or a wired network, is transmitted to the global IoT network. The design of the network layer is more professional, and most of them involve computer professional knowledge. This article is biased toward theorization, so it can only find relevant supporting materials from the literature and supplement of it with understanding. The network layer in the smart logistics system based on the Internet of Things technology is a bridge connecting customers and background data. Its main function is achieved through the network transmission platform and application platform, and the two platforms can be uniformly understood as an information integration platform. The network layer is the link that connects the major components of the logistics information system and is the basis for realizing information sharing and real-time communication. The basic communication network of logistics information system can be divided into three major components: logistics park network, urban logistics information network, and wireless communication network. The logistics park network serves the logistics management department of the park and the logistics enterprises of the park, connecting their respective management information systems and accessing the urban logistics information network to provide timely, smooth, and effective logistics information services for enterprises in the park. Urban logistics information network refers to the urban backbone network that connects the logistics park, logistics public information platform, logistics trading platform, industry management subsystem, and enterprise logistics information system, and realizes the organic integration of information resources of major subsystems. The wireless communication network is the key to realize communication with other logistics information systems such as on-site subsystems, on-board subsystems, vehicle tracking and dispatching systems, etc. It can be established by combining conventional mobile communication technologies with wireless cluster communication technologies.
