Automatic remote management of gas cylinders is an important task for gas companies, especially if it saves time and money on replacement and maintenance. The system presented here can be used in various industries that require monitoring of cylinders containing gas, such as industrial, medical, and food. The main advantage offered is the ability to arrange for cylinder replacement in advance to speed up, minimize downtime, and facilitate logistics. Monitoring uses a microcontroller from the Arduino family, which can continuously detect the state inside the cylinder via a pressure transducer. The customer can monitor the system by viewing the cylinder's status locally or through an online dashboard. In addition, if the level inside the cylinder becomes critical, the system turns on a warning LED light and sends an Alert message to the Cloud containing location information. The alert message was generated in the AWS IoT Cloud environment using the MQTT protocol and will be received on a mobile device owned by the cylinder replacement operator. Finally, an energy analysis has been carried out to evaluate the autonomy characteristics of the device.

Abstract

Automatic remote management of gas cylinders is an important task for gas companies, especially if it saves time and money on replacement and maintenance. The system presented here can be used in various industries that require monitoring of cylinders containing gas, such as industrial, medical, and food. The main advantage offered is the ability to arrange for cylinder replacement in advance to speed up, minimize downtime, and facilitate logistics. Monitoring uses a microcontroller from the Arduino family, which can continuously detect the state inside the cylinder via a pressure transducer. The customer can monitor the system by viewing the cylinder's status locally or through an online dashboard. In addition, if the level inside the cylinder becomes critical, the system turns on a warning LED light and sends an Alert message to the Cloud containing location information. The alert message was generated in the AWS IoT Cloud environment using the MQTT protocol and will be received on a mobile device owned by the cylinder replacement operator. Finally, an energy analysis has been carried out to evaluate the autonomy characteristics of the device.
