The Purpose

During the transportation of Vegetables/ Fruits perishables, most of the times first placed vegetable basket is the last one to go out. By that time it goes out, it might be already spoiled and be unusable.

Thereby delivering all the vegetable basket at appropriate times in a identified order without letting them go wasted.

The Technology

Bosch BME280 sensor is used for collecting data. The data is transferred through ESP8266 NodeMCU module to the cloud. From the cloud (here, io.adafruit.com), the data is processed and viewed at multiple locations As MQTT protocol is used, even at low speed, the data can be transferred and lesser data will be consumed for communication purposes. IFTTT for triggering and actions from the Cloud. [Ex.
