Design an Internet of Things Simulator of Fluid Volume Monitoring System for Petrol Station Underground Tank


Objectives: This study aims to design an internet of things simulator of fluid volume monitoring system.

Methods: The method used in this research includes simulator design and simulator testing. Monitoring system using an ultrasonic sensor, nodeMCU, ThingSpeak, and Virtuino. The value of ultrasonic sensors will be processed in the NodeMCU program resulting liquid level in the buried tank then sent through the internet to ThingSpeak.

Findings: The result of monitoring the liquid level in a buried petrol station simulator uses ultrasonic sensor HCSR04P and NodeMCU v.1.0 from 08.00 pm to 02.00 am displayed on the site ThingSpeak with value 17.42 L.Setting alarm on Virtuino at 50% of maximum volume of 8.8 L. The experimental results the volume of fluid reduction 8.09 L has managed to activate alarm on the application Virtuino.

Applications: This internet of things simulator of fluid volume monitoring system applicated for the petrol station underground tank.

Keywords: Internet of Things, Simulator, Fluid Volume, Monitoring System, Petrol Station, Underground Tank.
