Automating Insect Control

We develop small autonomous drones to keep crops insect free

 

 

 

PATS

Inspired by Bats and 
Dragonflies

 

We design drones that eliminate flying insects

We use bioinspiration to proactively control insect populations. Our drones automatically maintain balance in the delicate equilibrium of a greenhouse eco-system by selectively eliminating harmful insects. We understand the market’s needs and wishes to become more sustainable. The demand for biological and organic products increases while regulations on the use of insecticides become tighter. Our approach enables sustainable insect control with applications in all fields of horticulture. Moreover, we reduce your costs involved with insect control practices.

Technology

Our system is installed in existing greenhouse infrastructures. It acts as an early warning system, continuously monitoring the environment for harmful insects. Inspired by bats hunting insects in flight, elimination is performed by micro-drones that chase the insects

Patent

Our system is patented and developed in collaboration with TU Delft. This gives us access to the latest developments in autonomous microdrones.

The PATS system is

  • Autonomous and scalable
  • Easy-to-fit in existing infrastructure
  • Proactively targeting insects
  • Safe around humans
