The Ghallaty Smart Harvesting Basket - Solidarity FabLab Rabat ODC

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The Ghallaty Smart Harvesting Basket

Solidarity FabLab Rabat ODC   

Ten young people at the FabLab set themselves the objective of using new technologies to double agricultural productivity and revenue for smallholder fruit farmers. They therefore created and built a smart, connected harvesting basket robot. It is remote-controlled and linked to a new app that checks how ripe fruit is before harvesting it. It was built using the soldering iron and Arduino in the design workshops. The project also involved the young people gaining experience in development, micro-controllers, manufacturing, laser cutting and digital production at the FabLab.

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."
