Rosine commented on Handfree Automatic Water tap powered by solar energy

Hi Jean,

Keep it up. I understand that your system is sensor based which will help the rural areas people to fight against those diseases. Do you think this system will be easy I mean, its purchasing power will allow rural areas people be interested in buying?. I look forward to seeing  how it works for really.  @Teck Lab ( you joined is a great place to developing tech solutions.



Rosine commented on Auto Irrigation and Water Conservation

Thanks Alphonse HABYARIMANA, from Tech Lab. I hope that the project will bring positive impact in the society as you wishes to see. About the environmental impact to the system, it is true that location and humidity of the soil are sometimes different, which means that the system need to be regulated. I will adjust the system in a way that sensor will sense the level of humidity in order to inform the system to irrigate or not.  Again, It will depend on the plant that we are going to irrigate too. Some plants like rice need enough water than legumes. Which means that for plants like legume humidity to sense need to be high while for rice humidity need to be less. 

Thanks for the recommendation and I hope they will be helpful before implementing the project. 

Thank for advice and support,
