I have created Artificial Intelligence Fresh Station as a mass-market kitchen appliance. It was developed to grow crops indoors and supply enough veggie food for your daily consumption . It will save water, help keep soil clean and eliminate waste and CO2 emission. The station can deliver up to 32 different types of plants in 960 pots from just 1 sq.m. of your kitchen. Most important, station strictly controls the water supply, in contrast to traditional methods of irrigation.
That system is modular. A Starter Kit includes a tray for 10, 20 or 30 pots, lightweight frame, control board, water tank with a pump and necessary sensors. Users can start with one Starter Kit and expand the number of pots with easy-to-add modules.
The applications for IOS and Android allow users to:
So, The system takes care of a plant. Users need just set a time when they want to get the first harvest.
At an early-stage AI Fresh Station is a perfect solution for:
There are already indoor gardening systems in the market.
But my station has 3 main features :
AIFS is the most economical because here we use electronical sensors which allow to have water consumption control.
Finally, I want to tell you about my station, for growing 20 pots I need in average 2.24 liters per week to create ideal soil humidity, it is 9.6 liters per month, and 115.2 liters. And if we will use that station instead of manual watering we can save 55% of water, and of hydroponic systems we can save 896%. Just think about agriculture fields and how much water we can save using AI Fresh Station.
AI Fresh Station saves water and generates zero CO2 emission while growing crop. Also it prevents plastics waste generation. I hope that everyone’s understood that its not just kitchen device, it is real hi-tech which can start new trend of saving water.
Project videoThis is how I came up with the idea for this project:
It all started with the fact that two years ago I got acquainted with programming and microcontrollers, saw a video on YouTube about how automatic systems for caring for flowers are created, and then I worked on creating my autonomous smart pot for a whole year.
