Food Security

The Hydroponic Automation Platform Initiative (HAPI) is focused on creating an open source platform for automated food production. Everyone is welcome to participate and contribute to the project. The projects main focus is on system automation although it also generates designs for other systems critical to controlled environment agriculture including water filtration systems and solar thermal heating units.

Maya Culpa is the primary sponsor for the project, providing the bulk of required funds as well as running the HAPI website and social media outlets.

Technology

HAPI is based almost exclusively on open technologies including: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Python and SQLite. It uses github as its repository for source code and design artifacts.
