Design Engineering Intern at
4 -month full-time internship (April 2020)
An agrotech startup that grows radically sustainable and transparent cotton for the fashion industry.
Me testing my cotton-picking prototype
Worked on 2 major solo projects:
1. Disease identifier
Created a working Android app that uses machine learning via a TensorFlow model to categorise cotton plant disease via a phone camera image.
Presented the working prototype to the Co-Founders through an in-field demo, they were very happy with the results.
Also created a 'looks like' prototype using Adobe XD to demonstrate how the App UI would look.
2. Cotton Picking
Tasked with creating a low-cost method of mechanising cotton picking for small-hold farmers.
Went from problem definition to research, ideation, and prototyping.
Created 2 working prototypes and tested them in-field. My wearable cotton picker can speed up picking by 12x compared to current hand picking.
