Description:

The process of harvesting guava in the land has several obstacles including the insignificant difference of color between ripe and unripe guava. To determine an accurate and quantifiable level of ripeness, a chemical measurement method is needed, but unfortunately this method is destructive. For this reason, IPB University researchers developed a glove with the name SMOLF (Smart Glove Fluorescence) which functions to determine the ripeness level of guava in the field in a fast and accurate non-destructive manner using the fluorescence spectroscopy method.

The results of this program obtained a digital conceptual design from SMOLF along with its feasibility analysis consisting of analysis of power consumption, total duration of use, battery capacity, weight, and ergonomics. The results of the feasibility analysis showed that SMOLF was feasible for the fabrication process and field testing to be implemented in the process of harvesting guava..

Uses:

Determining the ripeness level of guava during the non-destructive harvesting process using fluorescence spectroscopy methods, so that guavas are harvested according to predetermined standard ripeness level and increase their economic value.

Advantages:

The shape of the SMOLF resembles a glove so that it is easy to use, has high reading sensitivity, fast measurement time, and does not damage the fruit or is non-destructive, and harvesting guava crystals will also be on time.

 

Resilient Ecotone: Kawasan Resistansi Melalui Pendekatan Ekologi Lanskap Berbasis Sosial, Ekonomi, dan Ekologi Sebagai Penyokong Keberlanjutan Hutan

Deskripsi Riset: 

Model  Resilient Ecotone sebagai upaya preventif bencana dengan pendekatan ekologi lanskap dapat menjadi suatu solusi baru yang dapat diterapkan. Konsep resilient ecotone menggunakan sistem ramah lingkungan sehingga tidak perlu banyak intervensi manusia dan dapat meningkatkan kualitas suatu ekosistem, khususnya hutan dan pemukiman sekitarnya. Konsep resilient ecotone mengedepankan keberlanjutan ekologi dan input teknologi yang direalisasikan dengan empat elemen penting yaitu pola kawasan, sensor kebakaran, konservasi, dan strata vegetasi. Vegetasi di sekitar hutan dapat membantu menahan api yang berguna sebagai sekat bakar hijau (greenbelt). Sistem sensor  dapat menjadi cara cepat untuk mengetahui awal mula terjadi kebakaran sehingga dapat dilakukan penanganan dengan cepat dengan teknologi sensor satelit, dan eco-foam bomb sebagai agen pemadam api yang akan melontar secara otomatis ke titik koordinat kebakaran hutan terdeteksi. Rekayasa pola kawasan dimaksud untuk membagi ecotone menjadi zona sensor, zona filter, dan zona pemanfaatan.

Kegunaan : 

Area mitigasi bencana kebakaran hutan dan bagian dari upaya preventif bencana kebakaran hutan dan perambahan lahan secara illegal oleh masyarakat sekitar hutan.  

Keunggulan: 

Model kawasan yang dikembangkan menggunakan pendekatan ekologi lanskap, diharapkan dapat melindungi dan memperbaiki ekosistem di dalamnya secara alami. Input teknologi yang ditawarkan dalam model ini menggunakan teknologi ramah lingkungan serta terbarukan sehingga tidak mengganggu ekosistem. Mewujudkan kawasan yang diharapkan membutuhkan sinergi antara alam, manusia, dan teknologi untuk menciptakan kehidupan yang harmonis dan seimbang.

Description:

Ten percent of Indonesia's total population suffer from Insomnia. One way to overcome insomnia is by providing pillow media. Pillow filling affects the quality of human sleep. Sheep wool has potential as a pillow filling with several advantages. Sheep wool production in Indonesia is also very potential, based on a projection of 13,600 tons per year. Utilization of local sheep wool in Indonesia is still very low and classified as waste due to its coarser characteristics and larger diameter, less suitable as clothing material. The pillow product design was adapted from the research result of Liu et al. (2011) about the most comfortable pillow design based on its hierarchy. Talophy is equipped with lavender aromatherapy which could help treat insomnia. The product is available in 3 colors, namely green, blue and gray, which might give a calm effect. The fabric used is flannel cloth for the inside and cotton cloth for the outside. The business concept that will be carried out is a socioecopreneur, a business that is not only profit-oriented but empowering the community and eco-friendly.

Purpose:

Helps to overcome insomnia based on lavender aromatherapy effect, sleep quality improvement through  pillow shape, pillow filling, and pillowcases innovation, and calming effect from the the available colors.

Excellence:

  • Helps overcome insomnia by improving sleep quality and providing a calming effect.

  • Carrying out the Socioecopreneur program, an effort to empower communities and protect the environment by utilizing local sheep wool. 

  • The use of sheep wool as pillow filling complies with the principles of animal welfare.

  • Products based on research results.
