My name is Ahmed E. F. R. Mohammed (also known as Ahmed Elwazery). I am an academic at Cairo University (Personal page). I hold a BSc in Soil and Water Sciences from my current employer.
I love to explore other fields, domains and academic disciplines in search for useful applications, tichniques and approaches that might benefit my own (i.e. water resources). That's why I chose to join the Maker Diploma program as it PERFECTLY suits my goals, and eventually resulted in peaking my interests on the subject, as it holds a GREAT potential to be applied in my field of study.
My final project is about constructing a fully-functional irrigation system that sends notifications to the user about the status of soil moisture via internet using Wi-Fi module, or via Bluetooth module, in case of the user's close proximity to the unit. The user can access the system using a web interface or a mobile app to initiate the system by activating the water pump remotely via internet when not at home.
