Oso Technologies is developing a wireless, Internet-connected soil moisture monitoring system. The system monitors soil moisture levels and alerts the user if your plants are getting too little or too much water.
Oso Technologies was founded in 2011 by five University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineering graduate students. CEO Eduardo Torrealba’s wife, who was having trouble keeping a basil plant alive due to improper watering, inspired the idea for their first product. The three co-founders built a prototype and moved into the EnterpriseWorks incubator in 2012. Oso Technologies uses low-power sensing and cloud computing to create affordable and user-friendly technology. Their first product, PlantLink, makes gardening easier than ever before by notifying users when a plant’s water level and moisture are low.
