Our love for plants and nature.

What it does

Using a sensor, we're measuring the soil humidity. As the values are received, they are output and real-time updated on a webpage. Using some custom calculated intervals, we're informing the user:

  • If the plant needs to be watered
  • Has enough water for the moment but will need some water in the near future
  • Is feeling very well and doesn't need anymore water.

How we built it

With passion, water, soil, sensors, breadboards and one burnt circuit board.

Challenges we ran into

  • Searching on OLX at 8:00 PM for a new circuit board.
  • Trying to understand why water is less humid than wet soil.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • A working project
  • Some happy plants

What we learned

  • Using algolia for search
  • Working with circuit boards, sensors and breadboards

What's next for iUd

  • Management of multiple sensors using the same circuit board
  • Working kits for home use
  • Android / iOS app
