Computer Science: Application Of Technology/Iot In Hydropower Dams, Orjola Jaupi

UBT International Conference

As time passes by, we barely see how much time it costs people to stay at work, fixing problems that happen every day. As people we should do more about humanity and technology is the door that opens opportunities for us to do this. Technology today is transforming every human daily life routine and it’s only the beginning of what technology can bring. By 2020 we know that technology will connect the unconnected by introducing the real idea of Internet of Things. Every little, tiny thing all over the world will be connected, but also big and important projects ...

Answering Food Insecurity: Serving The Community With Food And Knowledge Using Technology, Courtney Simpson

Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement

The courses of Tech120, CGT110, and ENGT 180/181 and Red Gold at Purdue collaborated to design a robot that would plant and water a garden for a local community charter school. The students centered the project on the users’ needs for fresh food, nutrition education, and early exposure to STEM for children. The school, Anderson Preparatory Academy (APA), is comprised of many children who come from low-income families and are in the free or reduced lunch program. Inspired from “Farm Bot,” a similar system that allows for almost hands-free gardening, the “Boiler Bot” is designed to be scalable so ...

Greenbin is an iteration of a larger project to implement a zero-waste container tracking system for use in Cal Poly’s dining facilities. The system utilizes a database system as well as passive RFID technologies to track the checking-in and checking-out of plastic reusable food containers. These plastic food containers can be checked out by campus dining patrons, and returned autonomously to collection bins that contain these scanners, allowing the containers to be recollected, re-accounted for, and reused.
