The Agrohelper Robot - Ongola Solidarity FabLab

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The Agrohelper Robot

Ongola Solidarity FabLab   

Three young people have imagined and developed an autonomous, remote-controlled cargo-carrying robot for smallholder farmers. It can be controlled by smartphone and GPS and is powered by solar energy. In “autonomous” mode, it follows farmers, carries their equipment and accompanies them in all their tasks. It offers a means of improving productivity and keeping farmers of all ages in better health! This project involved construction, electronic programming, 3D modeling, the use of the Arduino kit and laser cutters.

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."
