Hands-Free Towel Dispenser
Everyone has heard some form of the strategy to "give away the razor and make money on selling the blades". Sometimes, though, if one innovates enough on the "razor" it, too, can be sold at a profit. ITE's client is one of the world's largest manufacturer of commercial paper towels. In order to deliver these towels to the end user, they have developed many dispensers, both manual and hands-free, over the years. Recently, they decided to "up their game" and develop a system that not only improves upon existing hands-free sensing technology, but also incorporates many concepts from "the Internet of Things (IOT)" such as data collection and wireless access.
