Paper Abstract

Gas cylinders are used in many different situations, such as in research, in industry, in healthcare, and even in the home. Due to demand in such a wide variety of circumstances, there is the inevitable ambition of gas suppliers to improve the efficiency of their business. To this end, a prototype inventory management has been implemented in order to provide such improved efficiency whilst also integrating sensors in order to monitor gas cylinders from a safety perspective. The prototype system is presented in this paper and its operation described in detail. Preliminary results from the prototype system are also shown and the sensors implemented for demonstration are discussed. Future work to be conducted is also alluded to.
