Nearly one in ten americans are living in abnormaly dry areas, this quantity reaches up to 1 in 3 americans near november. Brick Outside helps people in areas vulnerable to drought to better take care of their plants by integrating an array of sensors and features.
What it does
It measures soil moisture, temperature and atmospherical condition and sends the data to our integrated cloud platform for user monitoring
How we built it
The device was built by combining several sensors into an arduino board. A series of servers were put on place to recieve and process the data sent by the device. Finally, a react web client was created for user interaction
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Integrating a propietary cloud platform for the project. Additionally, the web application looks very nice
What we learned
We learned about distrbuted systems and their applications, moreover, we learned about the interaction of serial monitors and the internet. Finally, we learned more about I/O streams.
What's next for Brick Outside
Developing convulsional neural networks and AI models for integration with VR to create an inmersive experience
