|Hello. I'm a senior student in Vietnam. I'm doing a science project about automation in receiving sunlight and rain for plants in urban areas. We're having trouble proving our project is worthwhile.
Hope you can help us. The problem we're after is: While planting in the premise of your house whether it's indoors, on a terrace or having a garden is beneficial for a lot of reasons, many people are reluctant to build up the trend. According to our survey, it's because planting takes a lot of time and effort which urban citizens can't afford. Based on that, we devise the project. Main reasons: _ Automation so that it won't take time and effort so it will advocate more plant growers _ We intended for the system to make the best use possible out of natural conditions of rain for water and sunlight for light because it's better. _ Better adjustment for those conditions. We have designed a system for spinning around plant pots, move them up down, and sideways so that every side of the plant can acquire sunlight and also move them to spots where the sun is not blocked out. And combine we have a net and cover mechanism to control the amount of rain received. Everything is processed with Arduino regarding the conditions and numbers from sunlight sensors, water sensors,... The judge's comments were that: it's unrealistic since it's a bulky hanger system it can only placed outside where sunlight is not considerably blocked or unavailable. Thus, the way that most people are after as of now is artificial conditions with LED lights and watering not rain and sunlight. We have proved that natural sunlight is indeed better for plants. But rain, however, is polluted and not as reliable as processed water. They think we're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist in the first place Can you help us with some problems of today's planting problems so that our project can be more reliable and realistic so that we can spin our project in that direction compare to what we're doing now? Or what we're doing is plausible and how can we fight against those arguments Thanks so much for your help.
