Raw cotton in the spinning mills is cleaned using petrol. Petrol is one of the essential fuels. This project is designed for the spinning industries to measure the level of the liquid content in the tanks. The usage of IR sensors and magnetic sensors evade the problem of oxidizing the level probes. Thermistor is a resistive device, which is used as a temperature sensor. The content of liquid/fuel in the tank is monitored by microcontroller. This level is displayed and updated using the IoT module interfaced with the microcontroller.
