Environmental factors impacting the product during production and storage were causing quality control problems for a company that specializes in roof materials. The manufacturer required a solution that could both give historical data for trend analysis and real-time monitoring of environmental variables in order to enhance quality control.
The manufacturer was looking for a tech partner to develop a proof-of-concept device with sensors for temperature, humidity, and an infrared camera to collect data on environmental conditions and surface temperature.
The solution needed to collect data from the sensors, save it in a local buffer for real-time monitoring, and display the results on a web app for the operator in real-time.
The results had to be saved to the cloud for further analysis.
In cooperation with Techstack, an IoT sensor kit solution was delivered that enabled the manufacturer to monitor the environment and product temperature continuously throughout production and storage without any interruptions to business operations.
Defined Core System Components and Tested for Optimal Performance
In cooperation with our partner, we defined the IoT sensor kit's core system components (Raspberry Pi Device, SSD, Wi-Fi, temperature/humidity sensors, IR camera) and created firmware for the devices that power the sensors. The solution also included an infrared camera that displayed the temperature indicators on the surface as a heat map. Each device was rigorously tested to ensure proper operation.
Custom Software & Cloud-Based Infrastructure for Real-Time Monitoring and Analysis
Data visualization and analysis enabled tracking of deviation from normal conditions, process supervision, and a better understanding of timing for production adjustments to reduce downtime.
Ensured Proper Functioning for IoT Sensor Kit Solution
Following the completion of the development process, we created connection and remote access instructions. Devices were connected in accordance with the instructions, and remote access and settings were established. Our team retested the devices to ensure proper operation.
Improved Quality and Gained Insights
After implementing our IoT Sensor Kit solution, the manufacturer was able to improve their manufacturing process and product quality, as well as gain valuable insights from the data collected by the sensors.
