ROBOTT-NET pilot project: Urban pest control
Software and robotic solutions for the prevention and control of rodents
“Within the framework of the European project ROBOTT-NET we are developing software and robotic solutions for the prevention and control of rodents in enclosed spaces”, says Marco Lorenzo.
This type of prevention is designed to help technicians and companies have better efficiency and control and a faster response, when it comes to controlling rodent pests.
“The project uses a mobile autonomous robotic platform with a robot arm to introduce a camera into the trap. It captures an image that is uploaded to the cloud”.
“The project is in collaboration with Robotnik, which is responsible for the assembly of the robot; and Hispavista, which is in charge of the cloud part”, Marco Lorenzo adds.
Aritz Zabaleta, a Systems Technician at Hispavista Labs explains that the application consists of two components:
“The first manages the entire fleet of robots that communicate with the server in the cloud and it processes the information collected by them. The second component is the one that allows customers to access processed images”.
