Havener Auditorium, IRRI
The Philippine Electronics and Robotics Enthusiast Club (PhilRobotics), the winning team in last year's BigAs Hackathon, will present about their winning app, Envilog.
Envilog is a stand-alone temperature and humidity sensor with real-time GSM-based data-sending, offline data collection, and web-based visualization.
The Envilog system is based on a low-power microcontroller with a modular sensor system that offers a low-cost, rugged, and easy-to-deploy environment logging system. It operates on a solar-powered battery and uses GSM to send data, GPS, and an SD card to log and back up data. Using Google Maps features, it maps locations through hardware GPS, color indication, and Google Visualization.
Envilog can be used with all sensors as well as with specific sensors for temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, solar radiation, and water height.
The PhilRobotics team will also present key findings and recommendations from a joint project with scientists from the Plant Disease Management and Climate Units.
