Eurotech, a long-time leading provider of embedded systems and a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) enablement, announced a technical partnership with e-Lios s.r.l. – a company based in Camerino (Macerata, Italy) specialised in software development for small and medium-sized businesses – for a draft study on interconnection and remote control of coffee machines.
The partnership has begun within an innovative project involving Simonelli Group S.p.A., a company based in the Marche region which exports coffee machines worldwide. Eurotech IoT Edge Gateway family (ReliaGATE) and e-Lios customised software allowed Simonelli Group to gather data transmitted from globally-deployed coffee machines and process to them in a 4.0 perspective.
IoT Edge Gateways collect and process data related to pressure, temperature and coffee supply and send them to the e-Lios software, which analyse data-related stats and turn them into valuable information to ensure flawless machine operations. The goal is to remotely monitor every significant parameter to improve performances and consumptions and to ensure quality assistance.
“For a long time Eurotech has been spreading the notion of ecosystem,” commented Giuseppe Surace, Eurotech CP&MO, “and as an evidence of this approach, the collaboration with specialised partners like e-Lios allow the development and deployment of IoT architecture in any application.”
“The synergy between e-Lios software and Eurotech platform and devices has turned out to be a winning approach and enabled a high-end telemetry control system for coffee machines,” said Francesco Maccari, business unit manager for Industry 4.0 at e-Lios. “The solution can be applied to many other use cases. Our software is scalable and highly customisable and can integrate to a broad range of Eurotech systems, suitable for any kind of project,” he concluded.
