B2B eCommerce store for a food distributor in Australia – Proof of concept deployment
The food distribution company wanted us to build an eCommerce store integrated on to the warehouse monitoring system so that clients would have direct access to information regarding the arrival time and storage condition of the perishable goods. Older products were sold at discounted rates. We integrated the solution to provide seamless transparency in the network.
Farm produce transit and distribution monitoring – Nederlands
This distribution company wanted to monitor the temperature of the vegetable trays being transported from the farm to distribution centers and retail stores. The pricing of the products was based on a variance in temperature while shipment and the transporter invoice was adjusted on a performance basis.
Smart farm monitoring – For Indoor greenhouse in Kenya
To monitor GPS, temperature, humidity, water flow, and moisture values from solar powered sensor nodes and pass these values to a gateway using the Xbee network. The gateway controls irrigation based on these values, which are customizable using SMS commands. Data and alerts are sent to the farmers regularly 24×7 to their mobile phones.

Vibration monitoring in industrial cranes and elevators – India
The industrial house wanted a wireless mesh solution that monitored their heavy duty cranes, carts and elevators for abnormal behavior. We built a solution using Bluetooth sensors and gateway devices.
Bluetooth accelerometers, gateway devices, edge storage, Grafana, Node-Red, InfluxDB, hastic time series anomaly detection.
Commercial space security monitoring – India
The partnership firm is a leading accounting agency, having high profile business houses as their consultants for financial and legal matters. They wanted an alert system to ensure the people do not enter the record room or open cupboards during nonoffice hours. We built a simple security system based on wireless mesh devices with configurable alerts on instant messenger.
