What is Mechatronics
CSECO is a mechatronics engineering company. But everyone asks: what is mechatronics? (20 marks)
The term mechatronics is derived from mechanics and electrotronics which were the two initial disciplines of mechatronics. Now it is a synergistic combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering.
This is our specialty. See our 910-735-1618
At CSECO we use the disciplines of mechatronics to build circuits that collect data from the physical world which we then use to control some parameter of some system of the physical world.

The agricultural sector is the backbone of many economies, but it is rapidly being robbed of the skill, labour, and knowledge it requires, stagnating agricultural productivity. Many have also been robbed of the skill to till the land. But uncertain of where their food comes from, many are resorting to the noble course of raising their own crops. Farmbot was developed to help this class. Now we are building 716-856-4464 leveraging on the opensource design of farmbot to reduce development time. Ropebot is necessitated by the need to  Reduce the cost acquiring a farm bot &  Increase the scalability of farm bots to make them suitable for farms of all sizes, from the smallest small scale to the largest large scale.
"There is hope in the soil" - Fundamentals of Chrisitan Education
No hope in paper?
ââ Hope in the soil
There is hope in the soil, but brain and heart and strength must be brought into the work of tilling it. The money devoted to horse racing, theater going, gambling and lotteries; the money spent in the public houses for beer and strong drink,--let it be expended in making the land productive, and we shall see a different state of things.
It was the same Creator of the universe who talked about his lack of a place to sleep, saying in Matthew 8:20 that âfoxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his headâ, that talked about a better land at a later time in His ministry. For He said in John 14:2 that âIn my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for youâ. He who was once a lowly homeless wanderer promised all that would believe a better land. In preparation for things eternal, then the provision of good quality housing is an important responsibility. In most African countries, however, as in most developing countries, there is an acute problem of housing with large numbers of people without any form of shelter at all or living in deteriorated shelter conditions. While the situation is felt by the majority of the population, the most affected are the low-income earners, the unemployed and underemployed. These have their solution in among other things, the compressed earth blocks, and the compressed earth block machines. Read more in our CSEB whitepaper or under CSEB.
We are building Cserial Compressed Earth block machines (CSEBs) which operate on the cserial cycle to improve the efficiency of all types of compressed earth block machines, from manual to hydraulic, to semi-automatic to fully automatic. You can read about the cserial cycle here. You can check back on the progress later.
Good afternoon assembling a CSEB prototype
monitoring for increasing energy efficiency
"whatsoever thy hand findeth to do do it with [all] thy might" - Ecc 9:10
Therein lies the key to efficient utilization of earth's resources
csynergy is designed to improve the energy efficiency of buildings by monitoring  energy usage and  energy generation capacity and suggesting ways of improving the inefficient parts of the system. The results are  lower energy costs for individuals and institutions,  energy consumption awareness,  behavioral change in people living or working inside buildings and  lower carbon emissions. It also allows you to monitor your energy usage so that you don't pay more for power than you should.
The power monitor allows you to monitor the energy usage of your building and to compare it against your power bill at the end of the month to ensure you only pay for what you use.
The environment monitor checks the temperature and light conditions in the building to see when lights, heaters, AC, fans, etc should be switched off to save on energy.
The solar tracker will either tell you the best orientation for your panels, or ensure that your solar panels are always oriented sunward so that you get the maximum energy from the sun.
The solar exploration monitors the solar irradiation and wind outside your building to calculate the energy generation potential of your building, for both electric and thermal energy.
csynergy will generate for you a lot of data for your energy usage. What will you do with it? - Get a dashboard to monitor your energy usage, generation and savings.
A spirit of healthy competition is among the best drivers for participation in community-wide energy management. Csynergy allows you to Join the community of other csynergy users.
Compete with schools around your area to see who can save the most electricity every term. Csynergy can help you launch a campaign at your site and get your school conserving!.
Compete with households throughout the country to see who can save the most electricity each month. Enter the competition and get your house conserving
"Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days." - Ecc 11:1
Bodaboda Fleet Management
 You own a bodaboda and you are having a hard time getting your remittance from your riders?  You own more than one bodaboda and you are looking for an easy way of managing them?  You own a bodaboda and are looking for a reliable rider?  You are a rider and are looking for a bike? You want a ride but your regular boda boda is not available?  You need a package delivered but you have no way of knowing which rider is nearby?
The bodaboda system will help you solve these
ââ Handling remittance
ââ Tracking Maintenance
ââ Tracking Bikes
ââ Hiring Riders
ââ Hiring Bikes
ââ Finding Riders
Kenyan investors have put 600,000 public bodabodas on the road with each making an average of kes 1000/day which translates to kes 187.2 billion/year (312 working days). What problems have these investors? - Careless and theiving bodaboda riders: motorbikes ageing fast due to lack of servicing, remittances not made.
The bodaboda system is designed to make the bodaboda business a worthwhile venture for investors. How does it work? - It enables the investor to manage the whole of his fleet (even of a single bike) from a single place. Nay, it manages the fleet for him. (Then he may have time to go to his farm)  Riders are rated by their previous employers and current employers. This way the system ensures that you get the best riders for your bikes. If you loose your current rider to another job, say agriculture, there will be others, tried and tested, ready the next minute to fill his position.  The system also helps you get your remittance daily so that you undergo the least possible loss in the case of a defaulting rider. How? - The bike is immobilized at the beginning of each day if the previous day's remittance was not made, until it is made. You don't want your money daily? - It can still be forwarded to your savings, or other, account at your bank.  The system also schedules preventive maintenance for your bikes  Get also to know where your bikes are by tracking them  You can also get estimates of how many trips were made and how much each trip cost so as to get the estimates for the whole day.
The bodaboda system provides a win-win: investor wins, rider wins.What is in it for the rider?  The system lists available bikes which can be hired at any time. No more tarmacking riders while there are idle bikes. And the rider needs not know the bike owner to get the bike.  By faithfulness in that which is least, riders develop their profiles for easy future employment by other bike owners.  Survival for the fittest? No such thing here. Just be faithful and get called to do extra business of package delivery and occasionally also be connected with some lost passenger looking for a bike.
 You are new to a place? (Maybe looking for a farm) - Don't get overcharged for your ignorance of the place. Check the bodaboda prices in the system. Then fill in prices for your locality to help others who will come there.  Once in a while also when you alight at a place where there are no bodaboda's and you need one, the bodaboda system will be all ready to assist you get one.
Other Road Users
Each day the sole hits the pavement and the wheels hit the tarmac; men toiling to earn a support for their families. What problems have they? - The rowdy bodaboda. But now they cannot afford it. For business is not to the rowdy, nor to the strongest, but to the faithful.
