Project Success Story

Client’s Brief: The client wanted to develop a standard connected IoT-based platform to monitor and control IoT-based platformflavored drink dispenser systems.  They were scouting for a platform to enable better transparency on various operations and functionality of the dispense system unit.  LTTS (L&T Technology Services) was selected to overhaul the dispense system unit, that included the redesigning of hardware, software, and motor control firmware. 

Solution: To ensure that flavored soda drink dispensers were up and running all the time, LTTS developed an IoT-based cloud platform to monitor and control dispenser systems for the client.  The platform consisted of 10.1” graphical touch screen LCD connected with custom hardware board and an Android-M OS; and peripherals like USB, I2C, SPI, EEPROM, RTC, Ethernet, HDMI, and UART.   The software features include:

  • Connectivity with Microsoft Azure
  • Flavor replacement features
  • Application upgrades
  • Tracking and monitoring
  • Access control and diagnostic mode
  • Web and mobile dashboards for equipment health, asset model management, data visualization, and analytics

Business Benefits: LTTS’ solution provided an end to end IoT platform for remote monitoring with 100 percent real-time visibility and 99.9 percent product uptime.  Other benefits include: 

  • Pouch emptiness tracking  accuracy brought up to 99 percent
  • The operational cost was down by up to 30 percent
  • Highly scalable cloud architecture and capability to connect ~2,000 devices concurrently
