Our development includes adapting the initial system to the types of flies that exist in Israel, as well as developing a facility that can work for 5 years, 24 hours a day without human contact with the assumption that it can reduce the amount of chemical pesticides by 40%.
This is a unique product that no company in the world has. The system has an electronic card (controller) and the information will be centralized and collected via cellular communication in a control center that will be established.
A trial run was carried out under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture at their experimental farm in Tzrifin. The current experiment is expected to be completed in October 2021.
Adapting the system to the existing biodiversity in the area – Prior to the system installation, it is recommended to examine the effect of the system on the biodiversity of the operating area and to make sure that the system does not unduly harm the variety of insects in the area. To this end, the operating time of the system can be adjusted so that the environmental damage is minimal.
Depending on the environmental needs, a system that operates for only 6 hours can be installed, whose causal damage is low or a system that operates for 12 hours or more can be installed.
First sketch in the process.
The size and capacity of the battery were not final and neither was the location of the trap.
This is important because the distance from the ground in the initial perception was that the location of the trap would not be higher than 1.6 meters from the ground - this perception was changed later in development.
The second generation- Regarding the solar panel, it’s smaller than its predecessor.
Also, the battery provides lighting for 24 hours which was a new development.
