AAEON, a manufacturer of advanced industrial and embedded computing platforms for Internet of Things and Industrial Internet of Things has joined the European Vending Association.

AAEON offers optimised vending machine management with 24/7 global monitoring through its telemetry solutions, which can provide live inventory tracking, active machine sensors, and video surveillance. These solutions can help the vending operator minimise maintenance costs and view the status of their installed machines anywhere and at any time. Their product line ‘Brainy’ is also available as a retrofit to any vending machine.

Marco Barbato, director of PSM & technical department at AAEON said: “AAEON is glad to join the EVA as a member and will be keen to contribute to the implementation of iIntelligent vending solutions. As an industrial embedded PC manufacturer we are fully aware of the needs of vending machine manufacturers and operators. We are already working with some of them to create the new generation of vending machines.”

Erwin Wetzel, EVA director general said: “I extend a warm welcome to AAEON as our latest new member. Telemetry is a genuine technological solution for operators seeking the convenience of knowing at all times when and where their machines need servicing, updating or filling, and I fully expect intelligent vending machines to grow in the coming years as more and more operators recognise the benefits solutions like these can bring.”
