Experimental testing for scientific applications
Client: E&P UCO-Recycling GmbH
The E&P board is a specially designed PCB to control motors and sensors in a used cooking oil gathering/separation machine. The E&P board functions as a bridge between a Raspberry Pi (holding the software), and various hardware components, such as motors, sensors, GPIO expanders, RFID reader, receipt printer, …
Based on sensor values, we trigger different pump motors, thus separating oil from other materials and storing it in canisters. With such a setup, the user must only pour his used cooking oil into the machine, and our automated procedures take care of the rest. At the end, a coupon for the local grocery store is printed.
