Automating Insect Control

We develop small autonomous drones to keep your crops insect free







Inspired by Bats

We design drones that eradicate flying pest insects

Our bio-inspired solution proactively controls harmful insect populations. The bat-like drones work autonomously and keep plagues in check. By selectively eliminating harmful insects the ecological balance in a greenhouse ecosystem is sustained.

With this approach we enable sustainable insect control in horticulture, to facilitate the market’s needs to become more sustainable. By replacing conventional insect control methods, we help growers to mitigate the risks of crop damages, as regulations on the use of insecticides become stricter. Moreover, we directly reduce costs involved with insect control practices.

PATS Base Station

Our base station acts as an warning system, scanning the environment for insects. When a harmful insect is detected, the station launches a small drone that chases the insect.

PATS Drone

The drone is sent after the insect and mechanically eliminates it mid-air, when they are most vulnerable. This prevents further spreading of the pest through the greenhouse.

PATS Landing Pad

After the chase the drone lands back on the pad and sits idle, waiting for its next mission. Together with the base station and the drone the pad completes a fully autonomous solution.
