  • The Problem:

Automated data loggers currently available cost more than $ 4000

  • The Goal: To Build the same within INR 4000 ($ 100)
project status
Project Status
  • We have built a prototype
  • Further refinement is needed, primarily in terms of design
  • We aim to build a kit, so that schools can build these loggers themselves

  • Problem: Farmers have begun to use plastic lining for their farm tanks, to minimize water losses
  • These bodies of water attract stray animals, especially during the dry season
  • Dogs dig under the fencing to try and reach the water
our solution
Our Solution
  • A simple device that will be mounted on the tank fence
  • Emits ultrasonic waves at frequencies that dogs find very disturbing
  • Trials are on to determine the right frequencies

  • Replaced lead acid battery with ultra capacitor.
  • We are planning to commercialize this product through a Pvt. Ltd company


Human power solution for lighting homes of remote communities, nomadic people.
