Intel® Reference Design for Intelligent Vending is a scalable and flexible solution that quickly and cost-effectively adds intelligence to vending machines by enabling them to connect to the internet, allowing brands and operators to take advantage of new business opportunities, cloud services and data analytics. It includes a VMI hardware reference board design (schematics and Gerber files) and application programming interfaces (APIs) used by application software to more easily access typical machine peripherals (e.g., coin dispenser, refrigeration), This comprehensive reference design is intended to significantly reduce the time to market for intelligent vending machines and enable:
Reference design components
Vending machine manufacturers can use the reference design to architect future machines or to retrofit an existing one. The reference design is composed of several hardware and software components including:
