SEASON 2 PROJECTS
Central American coffee beans are affected by the “coffee leaf rust” exacerbated by the recent climate change. It affects the production of coffee beans and the coffee economy. The team has developed an early detection system that help prevent it from spreading.
There are millions of containers moving around the world. Each container is closed and sealed during transportation but can sometimes be removed for several reasons. The team has developed a method to sense when the container is unsealed thereby improving the visibility of the container status.
When accidents take place among workers or supervisors, lives are sometimes lost and reputations damaged. The team has developed a wearable device with SOS button and geo-fencing capability to ensure the safety of workers and reduce the risk of accidents.
As society advances, the amount of mails decreases dramatically. However, the postman still has to check on the postbox daily. The team developed a system that reports when a letter has been dropped to improve route planning thereby saving human resources and fuel.

He first arrived in Taiwan September last year for an exchange programme at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Samuel’s plan changed when he was accepted into Hacking House Taipei II. Invigorated by the three months accelerator programme, Samuel has decided to extend his stay with an entrepreneur visa in order to start a business with the partners he has met at the Hacking House Taipei II.
