Agri Smart aims to improve sustainable agricultural production and offer food security. The system was designed and produced by six young people between the ages of 21 and 27 and is organized around sensors placed among crops. These sensors automatically set off watering, air-conditioning, and lighting levels, depending on the data gathered and collected on the platform. The app can automatically initiate actions or leave it up to the user to decide whether or not they should do so. The young people involved received training in 2D and 3D modeling, electronics, using 3D printers and laser cutting for this project.

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."
