Drip-irrigation System to Water Household Plants
  • Known as the Smart Watering Irrigation System (SWIS), the device analyzes the soil-moisture content through moisture sensors.
  • When the soil moisture reaches the 30 percent threshold, water is no longer distributed to the plant.
  • Local nurseries sponsored and consulted on the project, and Vernier provided the InvenTeam with design equipment.
  • For its next steps, the InvenTeam plans to create an Internet interface so consumers can monitor their plants remotely.
