What's next?
We are now preparing the next steps for you, the community. Please stay tuned!
We are working on a forum and a separate webpage. If you have any question please don't hesitate to contact us via email!


IoT device for analyze of grain mix (g.mian)

G.MIAN - This is a system of analyzers that easily integrates into various machines and lines of production of mixed fodder and any other grain processing. Integration allows to exclude the time delay of the time necessary for the analyzes in the laboratory conditions. Fodder producers can not get the state of the product quality at different stages in real time, which entails losses (production of a product that does not meet the original requirements and as a result is sold at a much cheaper and even stopping the technological process as a result of an emergency) in the equivalent of about 1.2 billion UAH per year only within Ukraine. Our analyzer is built into the machines in a unified hole, performs sampling, and sends a specially generated photo to the cloud / server. There, it is processed into information corresponding to the indicators: crumbling, fine fraction content, moisture content, fat content, protein and fiber content. This information is necessary for the correct operation of the plant, since this is the basis for the operation of the automatic control system for all technological processes of the plant.

    Hi Kostya Habuiev,

    Thank you for the submission.

    It would be great if you can provide detailed schematics, implementation plan and most importantly how TAPAS board fits in your idea. Please reply at the earliest as the deadline is soon approaching.

    Best Regards,

    Stefan @ TAPAS Team

    Good day, Stefan!

    As for the implementation plan. The device is planned to be integrated in the flow on the conveyor, where once in a fixed time the sample of the grain mixture will be taken using the drive auger. The device has the form factor of the now existing blade, which implements the test. After the sample is taken - the camera takes a picture in a special photo-report and sends the information to the cloud. Further from the cloud, an analysis is carried out in the laboratory for the quality of the grain mixture. Provided that the quality does not comply with the regulations, a signal goes to the main controller of the system through the cloud and an emergency stop occurs.

    Tapas is the main device for controlling auger drive, camera. In addition, the board will be responsible for the periphery between the specific device (g.mian) and the main controller of the system through the cloud

    Below is a block diagram of the device
