Soil Scout Ltd
We have developed and patented a small, cost-effective wireless sensor platform that depending on conditions, transmits near real-time data for up to 20 years, and at a depth of up to 3m underground: maintenance free. Now you can easily measure the critical underground data totally maintenance free.
Where did the project idea come from?
Our Company visited Sri Lanka in 2018 and the local authorities told us about the critical issue they have with landslides and that they’ve been looking a solution to predict them and prevent damages better.
Why did you select that specific target country?
By the fact that the local authority had expressed their need and was willing to study the matter.
Who are your partners in the target country?
Mobitel Pty Ltd. – Research / Technological Collaboration, NBRO – Local authority responsible for landslide research and management.
What is your long term vision for your company working in your chosen partner country?
We are looking for a longtime collaboration in research and studying to further develop our solution with the local partners we have in Sri Lanka.
What impact do you believe INNOWWIDE will have on your company?
Without INNOWWIDE we wouldn’t have the possibility to develop and test our solution and therefore the whole market would have stayed untapped.
Can you offer any advice or guidance to others looking to apply for INNOWWIDE grants?
The application process was very straightforward and the whole INNOWWIDE team was supporting to successfully accomplish the process.
