Seeking a smart device for remote measurement and control of delivery of gas from pressurized cylinders
Project Size 250,000 € · Deadline : 2020-10-20
We are seeking a smart device for remote measurement and control of delivery of gas from pressurised cylinders based on information linked to purchased quantity of gas. The desired outcome is to source, in sufficient quantities, a ready-to-market smart metering device for gas cylinders with connectivity features that would enable remote payments and control of the gas dispensed. Pricing levels should be below 20 USD/unit in the long run ideally and after successful pilot results. Current market offers contemplate pricey (50 USD/unit) and elaborate solutions for the needs. Technology Readiness Levels should be between 7-8. Current estimates for a pilot project are about 5-6.000 devices that at full scale can ramp up to 50k with price targets becoming attractive and the solution becoming technically viable and competitive. The more attractive the price levels achieved then more than 50k devices can be considered.
