Insect farming for sustainable protein is a way of the future. Automation is key for these systems to work efficiently and be profitable. This particular project will work on one important aspect of production that is normally very labor intensive, which is the dispensation of a water source. Water is either given as vegetable scraps (carrots/potatoes), or otherwise. This project will focus on two solutions.
The design of these insect facilities (for mealworms) are very simple: just racks of bins stacked vertically (with air space between each bin). The automation will have to be able to move or work with vertical and horizontal planes.
