A Concept of Fuel Tank Calibration Process Automation Within IoT Infrastructure
The Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Cloud technologies today provide new options for remote measurement data collection, storage and processing. Fuel tank calibration process automation by adapting IoT infrastructure model is explored in the article. The impact of geometric and volumetric fuel tank calibration methods upon hardware and communication channels requirements in IoT infrastructure are considered in the paper. A distributed certified metrological laboratory establishment in the field of fuel tank calibration concept is introduced and explained by system architecture view description and sequence diagram of its operation.
