The principal objective of this project is to design, develop, and if it’s possible, make an automatic irrigation system that works from renewable energies. For this reason, the necessary energy would be provided by a solar panel. The project is divided into three parts:
The first one consists on developing a study of the land and drawing up a map of the orchard
The second one consists on making all the necessary calculations to carry out the project.
And finally the third one consists on building the irrigation system physically, from the data obtained from the first and the second part.
Having into account the aforementioned objectives, this project aims to design an irrigation system for a vegetable patch and construct it, considering that it collects rainwater and has a submerged pump. To construct this system, which is the final objective of the work, it must be taken into account that the installation budget is affordable.
The practical performance has been divided into the assembly of the irrigation and the installation of the local power plant, which would be the solar panel.
We are Manuel Martínez, Joan Viñallonga and Marc Pérez, students from the technological field. Our research project is called Remote sensing applied to precision agriculture.
Our goal is to reduce the high water consumption in agriculture with new technologies. A multispectral camera coupled to a drone alongside an analysis of data obtained after multiple flights can help to reduce this consumption.
Besides, we have focused on helping small farmers in our area monitoring and controlling their crops to improve productivity and have a more efficient use of water.
In the long term, we would like to altruistically help farmers around the world since the agricultural sector is where more water is used and also wasted.
The seas and oceans, the energy of the future.
The constant increase in the demand for electricity throughout the world, together with the problems of current models to generate it, has forced society to seek new forms of energy that respect the environment, one of these energies is produced by waves.
Currently they are testing and developing several prototypes, my proposal raises the improvement of one of these systems. A prototype has been designed with three anchoring points equidistant at an angle of 120º that, independently, can generate electricity, thanks to the vertical movement of each of them. This has allowed to obtain enough energy to illuminate an LED panel.
