We are inspired by the inefficiencies in Irrigation systems that can be easily improved by applying automation networks.
What it does
This project allows
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Torque required to turn a drip line valve can be challanging to overcome with small servos, so we ahd to do many iteration of mechanical design which is still in progress.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have been able to identify a niche problem, which is actionable and can be solved.
What I learned
I learned that software is not everything, you reall need to get your hands dirty in soil.
What's next for Smart Drip Valve
We will develop Android or IPhone applications, complete that automation cycle.
