Like the fungal filaments that connect and nourish the forest, Mycelium powers smarter agriculture with distributed environmental sensing for better harvests.
What it does
Mycelium is a distributed sensor network built with Web3 technologies such as IPFS and Ceramic. Through the Mycelium network, compatible devices provide real-time, actionable data to enable users to respond dynamically to changing environmental conditions and to optimize production.
How we built it
We used embedded devices to drive data to Ceramic and IPFS along with a custom oracle service and Ethereum smart contract to populate the UI.
Challenges we ran into
We attempted to use Chainlink for AccuWeather and Openweather data but were not able to find public nodes for the feeds. We built adapters for those APIs, and ran a node locally. In the future, we would like to deploy the node and keeper infrastructure for driving UI updates.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we were able to explore a diverse range of technologies and that we were able successfully integrate them into this project.
What we learned
Teamwork and the dopamine high of successful hard work.
What's next for Mycelium
Mycelium is going to spread everywhere.
