  Project Synopsis
 
 
This is an end to end closed loop tracking system used to track domestic and commercial grade of LPG cylinders. It is a High Availability server configuration. Fox Middleware Servers have interfaces with Fixed RFID Readers, Hand Held RFID scanner (PDA), Smart Card Controller / Reader, Kosan LPG filling system, IBM Application Server, External web services and Siemens PLC.
  Project Features
 
Input collection, Project management, planning and project organization were supplied to the client.
 
Proof of concept (POC) was given to the client. A RFID station was built with one fixed ATEX RFID reader and the proposed concept for tracking cylinders was tested for 600 tagged cylinders. Similarly POC for Handheld terminals and smart card readers was done.
 
After successful POC, the functional design specification (FDS) and interface design specification IDS was provided. The development of software, modular testing, integration testing and load testing was carried out based on FDS and IDS. The FAT document was supplied listing all the test cases. The system is commissioned and in process of handover. The DLP, AMC and services shall be provided for 3 years.
