Weather Data Logger

Weather Data Logger

Need: Recording of weather data such as temperature and humidity; for pest control and crop advice to semi-literate farmers.

Weather Data Logger

  • The Problem:

    Automated data loggers currently available cost more than $ 4000

  • The Goal: To Build the same within INR 4000 ($ 100)

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

Ultrasonic Dog Repellant

Ultrasonic Dog Repellant

  • 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

  • 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

Pedal Power generator

  • 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.

Educational Aids

  • DBRT Students have tried to understand their physics curriculum better by building small toys to demonstrate simple physics concepts

  • We aim to take the idea further by building a kit to assist rural school-teachers

Handheld Admin Console

  • An easy-to-use, rugged tool to assist rural school-teachers in streamlining their administrative work

  • At its most basic, it will log attendance records

  • More functions can be subsequently added

  • Status: Code for the device has been written and tested

  • Project owner: Amitraj Deshmukh
