6LoWPAN based wireless electricity meter reading module
Automated Guided Vehicle
Real time electricity consumption monitoring system for industrial complexes
RFID based attendance system
We were awarded a work order from MPMKVVCL Bhopal (Electricity Distribution company of MP) for this product. In MP all meters are being replaced by advanced Smart meters. These meters can be remotely accessed wirelessly by encrypted 6LoWPAN protocol. So we developed a small module of a size slightly bigger than a USB Pen Drive that can read meter/meter tamper data from all electricity meters within its range (100m line of site). With the help of our module, MPMKVVCL can generate electricity bills of its consumers using a mobile app.
RFID based attendance system is a standalone product enabled with IoT to mark attendance of school students. Attendance data is sent in real time to server and parents
are informed by SMS from sever confirming that their child has reached or left from the school. The product can connect to internet either through Wifi or GPRS connectivity. It can automatically update its student database by checking the version number of student database. During RFID card swapping, attendance data is uploaded in background.
In our product we will install sub-meters at various desired locations. These sub-meters will have a communication port for reading electrical parameters. A 6LoWPAN enabled
module will be attached to these sub-meters. These 6LoWPAN modules can read data from these sub-meters via available communication port and send it to a host gateway via 6LoWPAN wireless mesh network. The host gateway will then send it to remote server/website which will do all data analytics on this real time data.
Working of Smart Switch Boards (SSBs) as explained above is based on Wireless Sensor Network concept where SSBs will act as end nodes connected to one Host gateway module. Host gateway module will create a 6LoWPAN based secure wireless Mesh network, with all communication routed to itself. Host gateway can have all types of connectivity like Wi-Fi, GSM, Bluetooth, etc. Android App on user mobile phone can connect to our SSBs either by Bluetooth without using internet or by using internet connectivity.
DC power generated by Solar Panels is converted to AC power using Solar Inverters. Most such inverters provides a communication port to read electrical parameters of power
generations. We developed a custom product which can communicate to these Solar inverters via RS485 communication protocol. In real time this data is posted to a remote server using GPRS network. Sim-card can be inserted in the product. If RS485 port allows some controls, our product can also support controlling inverter parameters from server or user website.
