Abstract: This paper demonstrates a novel approach in industrial machine monitoring on cloud server using Internet of Things implemented on Raspberry Pi. The raspberry pi is a small credit card sized computer which can directly send data to the cloud server. Any kind of CNC or industrial machine can be connected to Raspberry pi giving logical inputs and can be monitored on the internet based server so that the real time production data, the work currently going on, the employee who is working on a particular machine, the rate of production, causes of delays and downtimes everything can be monitored by the supervisory or authorities sitting at a remote location almost anywhere in the world. Moreover the system is very simple which can be operated by unskilled workman working on the floor.
Keywords: Raspberry Pi, Machine monitoring, IOT.
