iPani - SMART WATER ACCESS POINTS
Ease of Access: Installed at the same place where users buy bottled water. Discovery thru map interface on the app
Assurance of Safety and Quality: display unit showing the water quality (TDS, pH, temperature) as well as the last serviced date. Wrong parameters dispensing stops with error msg. Cooling to ambient temperature
Low Cost: 1L of water at one-fourth the cost (Rs 5/L instead of Rs 20 for a bottle). Choice of lesser volume for lesser price
User Friendly: Payment using UPI (mass adoption in place), recyclable paper cups if not carrying a bottle, choice of volume
Spreading Awareness: real estate to display eco-friendly messaging and products, app for eco markers and behavioral nudges, merchants become voice of the movement
The Machines uses Unified Payments Interface (UPI) for payments and Internet of Things (IOT) for regulation to arrive at a smart solution for the availability of safe drinking water at public places. At the same time it reduces our dependence on single use plastic bottles thereby mitigating environmental degradation. The UPI technology has wide adoption particularly for everyday commerce payments and hence make for a great use case.
This Water Refill Point is a pay per use device where the customer scans a QR code displayed on the machine to make a payment using a UPI app of their choice. The machine itself is connected to the internet, has smart sensors to evaluate the quality of drinking water, a display screen to show values or actions and an internal array of electronic components which connects it to a central control platform. This enables the remote regulation and maintenance of each machine.
iPani units can be easily located and operated via our mobile app, which makes the refilling process tough free.
