FAT, CLR -Corrected Lactometer Reading, SNF-Solid but Not Fat, Embedded System


internet of thing is revolutionizing the agriculture industry and enabling the farmers to contend with enormous challenges they face new creative IOT applications are tending to the cost adequacy of milk generation. Farmers themselves are recognizing that they can capitalize on the opportunity IOT presents to capture real economic value. The dairy farming is important business of Indian farmer. Dairies collect milk from farmer everyday & payments for this milk are done according to the rates per liters. This rate depends on various factors like FAT, CLR & SNF of the milk, But mainly on the fat in the milk. We are developing a system that will measure these parameters. This is only recently that automation has been introduced into agriculture. Thus the spot calculation of fat present in milk will play the vital role in the business development of farmers. Also the system which farmers can operate without experts from industry will help to increase profit of farmers. This paper describes one of the applications of embedded system or optical system. It is Small compact, embedded in a single unit, requires less power and measure milk parameters like FAT, CLR SNF (Solid but Not FAT) with less cost. . This system is based on the principal of photometric measurement of light scattered by the milk sample. . The light is scattered by the fat globules present in the milk then by using this method with help of IOT module these reading can send over internet. And thus these actual values of fat content on the spot could be fetched by dairies anywhere by using IOT technology and farmers will be able to have increased values of milk as per market .The main advantage of this system is that there is no dependency of farmer over the specific dairies to determine the fat content and no experts will needed so as to calculate the milk content.
