We aim to create a realistic means of food monitoring for the prevention of wasted recourses. -Time -Money -GroceriesThe eWaft is designed for a wide range of people: Anyone who eatsUpon the completion of our system, it could be a permanentintegration of todays food storage.With the large market to mobile device users, integration to twowell established institutions would be easy.
Original Idea Todays Change-Sensing nodes in -Home food storageshipping containers sensing-Wireless transition -Android interactiveto driver display-Prevent spoiled -Prevent foodfood from causing wastingfurtherdamage
In Short… The eWaft ionizes emitted vegetation vaporsthat can be detected as a drop across a voltage.That voltage is transmitted via a AOC using CANto an mobile tablet for a parts per millionconversion and ripeness estimation.…Uhh…What? The eWaft senses gasses from fruit and displaysthe information on an interactive androidscreen.
Contributions:The android accessory kit comes with source codeand demos for simple implementation of itsfeatures.Those have been heavily modified and added too.The Figaro sensor have suggestions and testscenarios. We took „suggestions‟ quite literally
Road Blocks?... YupCorey -> The Science. Cross Field Projectsrequire a lot of time to learn what you don‟tknow. “I refuse to move on with the project ifit works but I don‟t understand why” –MeChris -> New concept on Time management.Ordering parts much earlier in advance to givemore time to problem solving later.
WE are pleased We have Learned so much but there is much more to do... Much more to figure out.
