Optimising crop protection with a smart pest monitoring solution
The EU-funded Trapview solution allows growers to remotely monitor pest insects caught in pheromone traps. The growers are also alerted in real-time when insecticide spraying is needed, based on the high number of pests detected.
Trapview’s traps, which can self-clean ensuring high catching efficiency and consequently high data quality, send images to the cloud at least daily. These images are processed then analysed by machine learning to identify each of the insects pictured.
To ensure accuracy, the team had trained the AI neural networks by introducing tens of thousands of images of positively identified target pests.
