Design and Development of Environment Control Module for Growing Mushrooms.

Project  Description:

This professional project, executed at Kalki IoT Pvt. Ltd., aimed to empower housewives by providing a user-friendly mushroom growing box. The primary objective was to design a temperature and humidity control module, incorporating hands-on building of a refrigeration system. The project not only emphasized technical aspects but also aligned with a social cause, fostering independence among housewives.

Project Type: 

Professional Project @Kalki IoT Pvt. Ltd.


  • Empower housewives through a mushroom growing box
  • Design a temperature and humidity control module
  • Hands-on building of a refrigeration system for environmental control

Role in the Project:

Thermal Design and Simulation Intern

Methodology/Approach Used:

Employed a hands-on approach, combining CAD design with practical fabrication skills. Utilized Ansys and Solidworks for simulation and design validation. The project involved extensive collaboration and coordination to ensure successful integration and testing.
