Organic Food meets Tech
Sensorica (www.sensorica.co) are working on some garden management arduino based tech.
Tibi: "The "Garden Manager" is an Arduino-based garden control system. It takes information from sensors (temperature, humidity, soil ph, sunlight, etc.) and makes decisions to water the plants, to add nutrients and other products to water, etc.
For urban agriculture, this system reduces the level of commitment for those who want to get involved in urban agriculture. They don't need to take care of their garden as much, but it doesn't take the pleasure away.
There are two levels of value provided.
1. value to the user - automate processes
2. value to society - provide environmental data over the web, in real time
We have 2 prototypes that we are remixing and packaging for specific applications. We are working on the connections to Internet, the GM sends data over the web and allows remote control. "
We have been asked to join this process. do we want to do this? What can we bring to this work?
