Arrostech Automatic Irrigation - Solidarity FabLab Rabat ODC

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

Arrostech Automatic Irrigation

Solidarity FabLab Rabat ODC   

How to make irrigation more effective and save water for smallholder farmers? Eight young students not in employment, all around twenty years old, formed two groups to make a new automatic irrigation prototype with its own mobile application. Sensors measure the needs of the plants and regulate watering. The app collects all the information and makes it possible to carry out actions remotely very easily, even for small areas. This new, low-cost technology can make connected irrigation accessible to all.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

We have provided free training to young people seeking to enter the world of work since 2014 in our Solidarity FabLabs. There they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps even a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, the challenge is to create digital objects that address new agricultural and food issues. A theme that directly addresses one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture."
