Easy Availability Of Eggs
“This problem is faced by the poultry industry, where a huge gap is created between the poultry domain and the direct interaction with the market. So this proposal provides some valuable insights for investing ideas to deliver a seamless egg vending machine, which could solve the problem,” said S Denis Ashok, R C Narrendar, Shashank Moro and students of the Tilak School of Mechanical and Building Sciences, VIT University in an article.
At a time, a person can vend out six or twelve eggs and this is facilitated by a credit card payment. Other than that, a coin based transaction can also be done. “The storage unit can also be refrigerated if necessary. The whole part of the storage unit consists of eggs that are packed inside the egg trays,” the authors added.
