The EyeTrap Connected Insect Trap - Solidarity FabLab El FabSpace

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The EyeTrap Connected Insect Trap

Solidarity FabLab El FabSpace   

Detecting parasites early and alerting farmers prevents crops from being seriously damaged while reducing the use of pesticides, which are toxic and make insects more resistant. Using the Internet of Objects, image sensors, and a remote monitoring system, inspections and spraying can be reduced and become more targeted. The young people also used the 3D printer and the laser cutter to develop this prototype. All that remains is to test the system on the ground and develop it.

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."
