Cool project from Sameer up on Hackster.io.

Equipment failure can cause a huge impact on business in the manufacturing industry. It is critical to keep production line rolling. One of the reasons, this can occur is due to insufficient oil level. Sometimes the oil is not in the stock and takes a few days to procure it. This system monitors the oil level and indicates to the user, if the level is below certain level. The backend of the system uses Azure IOT stream analytics and shows the trend of oil consumption. It can be used for predictive maintenance. The system can also tell, if there is unusual consumption of oil that can be caused by potential leakage or other issues.

  1. If you experience any strange issues, you might want to take the Pi off the conductive bag, which could be shorting something on the back of the board.
