Smart Village and Space is an educational project which is a part of the Space Challenges Academy 2016.
We place independent sensor devices in rural areas to monitor air and soil quality, and gather data via satellite technology.
The project goal is to develop a fully autonomous system for monitoring the environment on hourly basis and to visualize it. The app can benefit both the city and countryside. Timely information (on hourly or minute basis) such as humidity, CO2 emissions, temperature levels, noise levels, etc. will open vast new opportunities for exponentially improving the city’ living conditions, and help farmers grow healthier food.
Using satellite imagery, combined with hourly updates on the ground (through a smart grid of sensors) and visualizing the information in an understandable manner could improve the lives of millions of people.
