SmartCall – The intelligent beverage coaster
Together with RASTAL, the inventor and leading manufacturer of exclusive glasses for worldwide known brands in the beverage industry and Hoffmann+Krippner GmbH we have developed the product "Smart Call".
The SmartCall system detects the fill level of the glass and informs the service staff or the counter staff. This means that a new drink can be offered at the right time.
The system enables real-time interaction with the consuments. Additionally, via the beverage brands’ loyalty programs, it provides with marketing measures according to special target groups during the direct consumption situation.
NFC technology for communication between table, beer mat and glass and mobile data communication with the system form the technical basis.
The SmartCall wins "German Innovation Award Special"
ROSI – ROBIOTIC-Sensor-Interface
Within the IoT process chain, the first two components "Sensor" and "Transmission" are of decisive importance. ROSI, our ROBIOTIC-Sensor-Interface, is the specially developed hardware for the first two components, perfectly suited for IoT applications. ROSI is a battery or cotinuously powered IoT Gateway System with SIM-card and mobile internet connection, communicating with our proprietary cloud via an integrated modem equipped with an M2M SIM card.
With its stable and ruggedized case (IP65 protection class rating) ROSI could be used as gateway for any kind of sensor in an industrial environment: e.g. fill level monitoring in vending machines (retrofit as well as newly designed), surveillance applications for flood protection, door contact detection in remote buildings, as a gate-way from an internal bus system to the internet, or any other application. There are no limits!
As ROSI can be assembled with a variety of sensors or connections to different bus-systems, virtually any kind of information can be sent to a cloud service.
HeliBar – Mobiler Barcode-Scanner
The mobile barcode scanner "HeliBar" comes from our development unit Helicom based in Münster. The scanner is able to recognize a variety of industrial barcodes and transfer them to the cloud or to a central server.
The IP-based transmission is made regardless of location and environment by an internal cellular modem. A robust, largely waterproof model with a membrane keypad as operating unit has been selected as the housing.
HeliBar is a tool for mobile controls of activities, products and presence checks in general and for any barcode-based application in quality assurance and logistics, for example.
Thanks to the integrated 2D scanner, the HeliscanPlus barcode scanner not only captures barcodes, but also the current GPS position. The built-in modem enables data to be transfered directly to the cloud via mobile communications.
The HeliscanPlus also supports a camera module as an optimal supplement. This has a powerful flash that ensures good pictures even in poor lighting conditions.
The high-resolution display together with the illuminated foil keyboard makes the HeliscanPlus the perfect device for logistics and data acquisition.
MaidSafe Barcode Scanner - smarter, efficient and productive hotel housekeeping made safe
The mobile barcode scanner, available in the US, can do it all: keep (1) staff safe, (2) rooms clean, (3) guests happy, and (4) operations smooth.
A discretely located barcode outside of the room is scanned, showing the Property Management System (PMS) that cleaning procedures have begun. When housekeeping leaves the room, they scan again, showing the room has been completed. As a result, the front desk and operations team can see an indicator of all rooms that are ready at any given time, ensuring guests need not wait longer than necessary to get into a clean room.
If cleaning staff encounter a potentially unsafe situation, the push of the panic button alerts security staff or the front desk. Since the device will have already scanned the room’s barcode, security will know the exact location and can send someone to investigate immediately.
In short, the MaidSafe barcode scanner helps clean rooms, clean up operational efficiency and respond to dirty-minded guests who might threaten staff members, all in one.
