Need embedded hardware/software engineer for hydroponic/tech project/startup
at Mario Sanchez in New York
Hello my name is Mario. I am a recent grad currently working for a hydroponic produce packaging design firm based out of New York City. For the past few months in my spare time I have been working on designing automated monitoring systems for hydroponic farms. (An exploding Market!) These systems use sensors and microcontrollers to communicate with a cloud that allows the farm operators to know the exact status of their plants in real time. The sensors take in information like humidity, UV, multiple temperatures. The sensor information is then be used to automate customized watering, light, and air patterns to create the most ideal environment for plant cultivation. In addition these systems ensure the health of the overall farm, imagine it as the Internet of things for large and small hydroponic grows. As of now I have developed the first prototypes, although my skills are limited and I am looking for someone to help take this project to the next level! As of now the current prototypes are Arduino/atmega328 Based. I need someone with the knowledge and expertise to transition the current project into a cleaner more commercial version with the use of embedded chip or custom board. What I am looking for are other people out there with the skills and desire to get into the hydroponic/tech field. I am looking for people with a strong knowledge of some of the following: microcontrollers, sensors, electrical engineering, ios development, android dev. Basically anyone who has the time and knowledge to join this project and help poise it towards becoming a business. I have direct contacts with several hydroponic farming industry leaders throughout the country, some of which have already shown interest in my project. All I need is a more technically skilled person to help me develop a better product to put in front of these farm owners faces and get funding going. Having been working in this industry for the past few months I know I have the right contacts and vision but what I really need is that right person to help me build this thing and get it off the ground! If there is anyone out with the skills and knowledge of any of the following, that's interested in even just talking about the project, please contact me. Micro controller, atmega embedded chip, ARM, EAGLE, custom board design, Arduino, iOS development, objectiveC, Xcode, maple
