Eurotech and e-Lios Partner Up for a Coffee 4.0
Eurotech announced today a technical partnership with e-Lios s.r.l. for a draft study on interconnection and remote control of coffee machines
AMARO (Italy), April 17, 2018 – Eurotech, a long-time leading provider of embedded systems and a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) enablement, announced today a technical partnership with e-Lios s.r.l. – a company based in Camerino (Macerata, Italy) specialized 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 customized 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 analyze data-related stats and turn them into valuable infor-mation to ensure flawless machine operations. The goal is to remotely monitor every significant parame-ter 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 specialized 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 customizable and can integrate to a broad range of Eurotech systems, suitable for any kind of project”, he concluded.
