Success Stories



Coca Cola India

Business Requirement:

Coca Cola India has started a pilot project – Happiness on the Go [HoGo] where they have put their beverage fountain vending machines on mini trucks for providing mobile beverage sales at strategic points and parties.

Since this is done through franchisees, tracking the performance each vehicle was quite critical. Coca Cola India was looking at real time information on sales, GPS location, etc.

Solution:

Axelta retrofitted its devices to existing fountain vending machines to capture information on GPS location, flavor and size wise sales that was sent in real time to Osmosis platform. Triggers related to driver performance, geo location based sales data and dashboards were created.

Solution

Technologies:

Axelta developed a completely new gateway with GSM capability, RTOS, Power back up, Local storage and much more.

Axelta also provided machine learning and real time analytics for their command and control center.

Axelta Remote Site Monitoring System

Key Challenges – Remote Sites

  • Getting real time accurate information from the remote sites like construction, events, etc is often difficult
  • Most of these sites don’t have access to WiFi making it tough to use IP Cameras there
  • Keeping regular record of the events and remote sites that assure stakeholders is tough and dependent of pictures taken offline and shared using WhatsApp and other applications
  • Getting sensor based information about the remote sites to monitor and control them is also required
  • Reliable and continuous power source also cannot be ensured for remote sites

Solution


  • Using Axelta’s Remote Site Monitoring System brings the sites on fingertips of stakeholders with real time dashboards and mobile apps
  • Solar powered system with battery backup that does not need additional power source
  • All the sensor records including geo tagged images ensure very accurate access to such sites
  • Specific communication and control needs of the remote site can also be potentially built easily on need basis

Features

  • Scheduled and on-demand images and videos of remote sites on your mobile phone.
  • These images and video can be event driven, for example based on motion sensing, door open, etc
  • Geo tagged and time-stamped images that can be shared with stakeholders
  • 16 hours battery back up that can last through the night
  • Autonomous and Weather proof [IP65] unit with integrated solar panel
  • All sensor integration can be done wirelessly requiring minimal installation
  • Single dashboard gives all relevant information of your sites
  • Easily integrated with other IT systems through REST API to seamlessly exchange information for comprehensive management

Preparedness – For Solution



  • Solution has already been deployed at multiple places
  • Specific sensors integration with Axelta HW will have to be done based on requirements
  • Axelta has the required hardware to wirelessly integrate sensors with Remote Monitoring Device

Attendance Approaches

Approach Pros Cons
RFID cards
  • Most common
  • Standardized and vendor ecosystem is in the place
  • Costs are manageable
  • Administration is not easy
  • People can forget the cards
  • Card damage
  • Does not ensure physical presence of actual person
Bio Metrics
  • Second most common
  • Costs and ecosystem are now very much in place
  • Administration is easier than RFID but requires some processing
  • Reliability is the biggest challenge because of the finger prints of blue collar staff are often missed because of the manual labor involved in their tasks
  • High maintenance because of the physical contact involved.Instances of readers going bad/damaged is a big issue.
Facial Recognition
  • No physical contact involved so maintenance is not an issue
  • Administration/Adding and Deleting users is very easy
  • Good reliable technology available for facial recognition
  • Very cost effective
  • Still not 100% accurate.Might need about 1% of manual exception handling
  • Ecosystem is still evolving
Iris Scan
  • No physical contact involved so maintenance is not an issue
  • Cost effective and reliable HW and vendor ecosystem is not yet in place
  • Individual attendance action is more involved and time consuming.More relevant for high security application areas
  • Administration will be cumbersome
