Zenvus is an intelligent solution for farms that uses proprietary electronics sensors to collect soil data like moisture, nutrients, pH etc and send them to a cloud server via GSM, satellite or Wifi. Algorithms in the server analyze the data and advice farmers on farming. As the crops grow, the system deploys special cameras to build vegetative health for drought stress, pest and diseases. Our system has the capability to tell a farm what, how, and when to farm. It has in-built GPS, compass and XL making it possible for a farmer to map the boundaries of his/her farm which could be useful during loan and insurance applications.
The following are some photos from Zenvus which was funded by the USAID. Zenvus will activate many solutions like agro-lending, agro-insurance, etc early next year as it onboards farmers in the platform. You can learn a lot on the artificial intellgience behind the Zenvus zMarkets engine here.
Our models ensure that we continuously improve farm productivity by tracking yield and total inputs. That is why zManager, our electronic farm farm diary is mandatory for all Zenvus users.
The Design on pencil as we started evaluating options using crop models etc.
The design on CAD had about 6 options. We took many factors in considerations
The final choice for development
The circuits and every part of the design were CAD-modeled to help in packaging and assembly strategy
The circuits and every part of the design were CAD-modelled to help in packaging and assembly strategy
Design is now modelled in a CAD and ready
We did 3D printing
