3D scan of model. Adummy new first aid articulated training device.

versions of TiMO (tank beer monitoring system)

The new version is the same size as a 9 Volt battery.
As you can clearly see this latest one matches the DuoTank logo.
(contact Duotank for purchase / implementation details)

Previous versions were reliable but fairly large. This one is still in operation.
This data is pushed to brewery ERP system to automatically optimize route planning of tanker vehicles. Currently installed in 23 location in the Netherlands with 100% uptime.

Beeld-classificatie, introductie TiMO tank kelderbier monitor

De TiMO unit heeft een eigen camera en ziet dit, maar beeld-classificatie maakt menselijke ogen overbodig om te zien of de kelderbier-tank leeg is.

Is een woord net zo waardevol als het plaatje?
"een enkel woord is meer waardevol dan een plaatje", lees waarom.

Vaak is een enkel woord afgeleid uit een plaatje ook voldoende om een taak uit te voeren, dan hoef je het plaatje niet meer te bekijken.

Dit transformeren van een plaatje naar een woord of lijstje woorden noemen we beeld-classificatie.

Genoeg gepraat... waarom is dit belangrijk ?

De afgelopen 4 jaar is er heel veel door mij ontwikkeld om bovenstaande voor elkaar te krijgen, volledig automatisch met computer-hardware en nieuwe software, en ook nieuwe inzichten over hoe dit efficiënt kan.

Bij ABI loopt nu al 4 jaar de TiMO, 365 dagen per jaar alle dagen online.
Hier worden tientallen kelderbier-tanks op afstand gemonitord.
Dit ziet er voor de eindgebruiker-dashboard zo uit :

Als er ergens een tank leeg gaat verandert de kleur…

About me and you (a manifesto for freedom)

About me (and you)

I have been a technical person since I can remember.
Always taking stuff apart, trying to put it back together.
Always fixing stuff for people that can not do it themselves.
There are no limits to my curiosity.
I am always busy learning new things, it could be about design, engineering, music, psychology, art, writing or business. My personality is more like an artist than a perfectionist, I get things done and move on, a pragmatist as its called.
I have worked with and for the top 500 companies as a consultant, but have mixed feelings about the corporate world and the disregard of people and resources for the sake of short time financial profit.
This however does not mean I work for free or think money is evil. If you want to hire me you have bring your checkbook, no doubts there.
Freedom of expression and personal faith and expressing opinion, the freedom to live your life as you see fit, as a man a woman or otherwise, are the highest good.
I believe people as individua…

Github release of Controllino code "Het Concertgebouw" water dispensing

Good day to you all.
I have just released this project I did in a day in 2016 under MIT license.
It was a project to help someone quickly get a water dispensing system up and running for "Het Concertgebouw" a famous building in the Netherlands.
The project was for a foundation "Join the Pipe" that tries to bring fresh drinking water to everyone in the world (Which is generally a positive thing).

The code was written in plain C (using Clion IDE for typing the code) on a linux system for an AVR ATMEGA 328P which is inside the Controllino Mini.

Hope you learn something from it.

It all worked and was delivered in a few days.
