IMG_20170505_124320631

 

 

 

 

 

Beside the Demo day program, people got a chance to know about the "Echo Innovators." Echo Innovators were  at the Regional final of Imagine Cup with their solution 'FarmLi'.

FarmLi is an attempt to bring livestock farming, machine learning, cloud computing and IOT together to solve livestock problems. It is a smart neck band which monitors temperature, activity & behavior of each individual animal. Our actionable recommendations help significantly improve income on daily farms.

To make the Farmli work, first of all, you have to tie the FarmLi on the your animal's neck which works with GSM Module. The Farmli simply consists of a strap designed to comfortably fit around your pet's neck and a small box that measure temperature, activity and animal behaviour, i.e. whether it’s eating, sleeping, ruminating or showing lameness.  After that, download their mobile app and  register your device and select which animal your looking at is. The data of the animal is then, transferred to your mobile's dashboard. The dashboard shows your pet’s temperature & activity readings over time through immersing graphs along with easy to understand insights and actionable recommendations that can be converted into tasks, for your ease.

Their target is all the livestock farmers who are struggling with there life, veterinary doctors who are always there to help and all the research and survey agencies working for the welfare of livestock. In our first phase we will be targeting, Nepal and SAARC countries then we will move towards emerging asian countries and slowly to the other part of the World.

The dynamic and hardworking team from Echo Innovators are:

· Pradip Subedi: Web-developer. Looks after management of every project.

· Bhupendra Ojha: Lead developer.  Technical geek.

· Melisha Ghimire: IOT developer. Looks after every research, documentation and over-all management.

· Sandesh Karki, Mentor: Looks after project management.
