Milk distribution and safety is of high concern as it involves the health of 90% of our society. Our project, milk distribution monitoring system targets the cold chain maintenance and milk spoilage avoidance. The system is based on Internet of Things and data mining. Traditionally milk is supplied in cans with minimum monitoring which may result in milk getting spoiled before its use specially during transportation at any point of time which causes vendors to know about milk spoilage only after the milk has been spoiled completely. To overcome these problems first data mining technique is employed to discover the routing plans so as to generate case-based routing plans for the drivers. Then the existing sensor based system will measure the pH value of milk and determine its quality. The system will direct to nearest milk booth with the highest proximity by using routing technique where data center serves as a cloud server to calculate the costs of a finding the nearest milk booth request, and these costs will be frequently updated by considering the location of van and the total number of milk booth in each areas whose data is accessible any time in the network. This routing algorithm will be used to offer a solution of finding an available milk booth if the PH value deviates from 6.7. This is implemented by a system prototype with wireless access in an open-source physical computing platform based on Ardiuno and using a smart phone that provides the communication and user interface for both the control system and the vehicles to verify the feasibility of the system. It will also give an alert SMS to vehicle driver so that collection of milk can be faster without more spoilage. This way it will maintain good quality and cost effective distribution of milk. © 2017 IEEE.
