Air-Extractor-outdoor public potable water device
Astmospheric Water Gennerator

This project aims to serve people who do outdoor sport frequently, solving their problems like outdoor drinking water qual- ity and inconvenience of finding drinking water. Our team designed a lightweight potable water service station Air-Extractor. It’s of sustainable design with solar energy, generating water by cooling the air below its dew point in recycling system. The water will go through a filtration system to reach potability.
In addition, the product has a built-in positioning module. User can find products by smartphone apps. We designed different models to fit in complex terrain.
Apart from basic functions, we included other starting points like user-experience orientation and social welfare.

Sometimes it might be hard for users to locate the water service device due to the complicated outdoor topography and environment. So the location module is embedded into the device, enabling users to use the app to locate the nearest one and provide the best route. Simple operation allows users to easily and quickly find the spot.

Due to the complicated outdoor topography and environment, different model designs are offered for different outdoor environments. For example, a larger capacity of water storage is offered in plain areas, a function of automatic light sensor is installed in the dark areas and the stability strengthening and windproof measures are both adopted on the twisted ground.
