AADANA

Aadana is a smart solar-powered fresh food storage system.

The system maintains regulated humidity and temperature, kills microbes with UV light, while using IoT. It records the condition of the fresh food and the working condition of the storage system and logs it into the cloud.

AQUACLOSE

Aquaclose is a recirculatory aquaculture system that enables waste and harmful water conversion into less harmful products and by such allows the reuse of the water.

The main components include the fish culture system, filtration/ sedimentation tank, biological and oxygenation tank, submersible pump and ultraviolet light.

FARM INTRUSION DETECTION SYSTEM

Farm IDS (Intrusion Detection System) is a modular solar-powered solution that uses artificial intelligence to detect and identify a potential threat to farmland at a distance before it arrives at the farm and sends an SMS alert to the farmer and security agency informing them of the threat and type of threat. It does not use internet connectivity for its operation as image processing is done within the system.

BIOFERTILIZER

This is a liquid Potassium Biofertilizer composed of microorganisms that produce potassium, hence the name. Biofertilizers are an eco-friendly and organic alternative to chemical fertilizers which affect the fertility of Nigerian soils and are mostly imported. 

OKE

The product is a set of hand-made jewelry, made from High-Density Polyethylene collected from discarded/ waste plastics. It consists of a linked set of repeating pentagonal blocks in the form of a necklace and a set of variously crafted earrings.

BIRD DEFEATHERING MACHINE

This device is able to de-feather four birds in 30 seconds.

LIGHT WHEELED MECHANICAL SPRAYER

This device is used in the application of herbicides and pesticides on farms. Spraying is achieved by wheeling the device which generates power from the wheels to activate the pump thereby converting oscillatory motion to reciprocating motion.

HARMAID INSULATOR

A thermal insulation material from Agricultural by-product of Calotropis Procera (Sodom Apple) fibre for use in thermal devices/systems in order to solve problems associated with synthetic thermal insulation (eg. glass fibre, polystyrene, mineral wool etc).

EDIS

Electricity Dispenser (EDIS) is an IoT powered smart electricity metering solution that promotes transparency in energy-based transactions between suppliers and electricity customers. It affords electricity customers a portion of control while maintaining quality service delivery and assurance of revenue to the energy supplier. EDIS is designed for both On-Grid and Off-Grid electricity suppliers.

EDIS, with complex arithmetic and logic functions and an embedded metering facility, supports multiple single-phase electricity customers, three-phase electricity customers and single-phase electricity customers.

iSMART HIVE

iSmart hive is an IOT based sustainable farming tool, that helps to foster rapid bees colonization, towards active pollination of crops. It also collates the following data from the immediate environment for better bees, soil and crop management: air quality, rainfall/humidity, temperature/sun intensity, soil moisture variations, honey production rate/volume, and GPS tracking/farm mapping.

MICRO HYDRO TURBINE

This micro-hydro turbine generator generates electricity by floating it on a river or stream or by placing it on any waterways to generate electricity without a dam.  It can be adjusted to suit any waterways. It is easy to install and built from locally sourced materials to solve power problems in rural areas.

BASELINE

Baseline is an efficient and cost-effective device that will help health care workers and those living with disability to measure their weight without having to lift them from their wheelchair. It is comfortable, saves time and manpower as it reduces the amount of time spent weighing patients from 25 minutes to less than 2 minutes.It is safe as it helps to reduce accidents by over 60%.

BIODIGESTER

A bio-digester that generates biogas (methane) via the use of cow dung and food wastes. After installing in your preferred place, all you have to do as the user is to continuously feed in food waste into the digester tank whenever you have some. Hence, biogas is continuously generated.

SISAPOWER

This is a portable power storing extension.It is used as a normal extension, the system detects that there is the power supply and starts charging its internal battery which can be used at any time. It has a 50000mAH battery capacity.
