We built a beer table that monitors the filling levels of beer mugs at big events or crowded bars. By putting simple pressure sensors underneath the beer mats we’re able to measure how close the glasses are getting to being empty. This live data is then displayed on a tablet visible to bartenders and waiters. In case of inaccuracy, guests have the option to send an alert signal by tapping the beer mat twice with their fingers.
This is not a sole hybris labs project! We’ve got could connections to the IoT community and a supporting/participating in the event called #OktoberfestOfThings. Also, pressure sensitive beer mats aren’t our own idea but the realisation is. The reason we did this was to stay in touch with the community that can inspire us when we’re working on our prototypes.
