Shelter is one of the basic needs and one of the most important challenges a man faces in his lifetime. As per the survey of PPP (Purchasing Power Parity), 21.9% of Indians are abysmal. The production of good quality, most efficient, and affordable bricks is paramount to solve housing problems in developing countries like India. This paper focuses on design, construction of an integrated machine that produces bricks for low-cost housing. With this smart and integrated machine, the production rate can be enhanced to 3600 bricks per day (8 working hours). It is an integrated machine which can produce different varieties of bricks such as clay bricks, concrete bricks, etc. Being automated through (Industrial Internet of Thing) IIoT, the speed, i.e., the production rate of bricks can be improved, which in turn improves the efficiency of the production. It produces the bricks based on the raw material fed to the machine. Assume that the raw materials provided to the machine are natural clay minerals, kaolin and shale then correspondingly produces a clay brick. This smart machine displays: i. the proportion in which the composition of raw materials is mixed, ii. The machine could be monitored via a mobile application. Also, it displays the count of bricks produced per 10 min. as well as the entire day. Thus, the machine is easily affordable for small scale enterprise (SME) with advanced features, and also the bricks produced are relatively cheap.
