If you currently apply catch plates/glue plates to register and remove pests then - YES - you have in the RobCam found a tool that automates early detection and counting of both pests and beneficial insects. The RobCam works with both color and pheromones and has built-in LED for even greater attraction of the pests and therefore earlier detection.
You'll get daily reports on the number of insects per species, and since you'll know both the growth in pests and beneficial insects, you can lower your application of chemical pesticides and govern your biological efforts for optimal results for both your company and the environment.
To install, you simply place the unit within WiFi reach and insert the battery for immediate operation, done - plug & detect.
Think of it as a digital adhesive plate, typically yellow, but we can provide alternative colors per your request. The RobCam also works with pheromones. The Robtelli RobCam is a freely placeable unit developed for earliest possible robust detection of pests.
If pests can be detected immediately, they can be addressed BEFORE they cause damage to the produce. Because of our 3D-printed catch plates securing the insects for robust detection and counting, the built-in LED light attracting insects, and the effectiveness of our proprietary AI, the Robtelli RobCam will offer you earliest possible detection and robust accurate counting of pests and beneficial animals.
Our Patent Applied For, LED equipped RobCam illuminates our catch plates, attracting light seeking pests faster than traditional passive catch plates. The RobCam is driven by a standard rechargeable battery that lasts approx. 2 months before recharge is required (a wall powered plug-in version will be available). That means that, given its compact size and weight of 1.7 kg, you can, for example, position the RobCam right next to the plants for earliest possible detection. The footprint accommodates placement within pot plant matrices, which is needed for earliest possible detection.
We are a start-up, and already have several major growers as customers, and have in their greenhouses successfully detected and precisely counted detected pests, such as thrips, whiteflies, sciarid flies and ephydridae. We have already brought hightened understanding of pest presence to our customers. Many more (of each kind mentioned) on the way !
The RobCam uses WiFi to upload its high resolution images to our cloud server. Therefore, stable WiFi is required. If you do not already have such installation, Robtelli offers to install our own WiFi solution at competitive pricing.
The RobCam offers a resolution of more than 20K pixels per square mm. This is equivalent of applying a 500MP camera. That way, even the finest nuances can be send to our proprietary AI for superior results.
As a starting point: The same number as the number of count plates your are currently using. So about one per 100 square meters for earliest detection. If you are not in need of very early detection you can apply fewer RobCams. Let us know what your needs are and we'll find the most cost efficient solution for you..
Our yellow catch plates are 3D-printed and of course recyclable for multiple usage. Gone are the days of wasting precious material. The plates are covered by a film of Eco-friendly adhesive and capture the insects for detection. The catch plates will come at no additional cost to you as a customer, since they are recyclable. Our proprietary AI ensures recognition and robust counting of the collected insects. We are filing patent applications for our AI system, as well, which allows us to find virtually all critical pests and allows for earliest possible detection.
The RobCam has outer dimensions of approx. 14 cm x 28 cm x 34 cm (w x l x h, standard foot lowest setting), with a standard foot of diameter 14 cm (we do offer various alternative placement and mounting solutions) for easy positioning directly amongst the produce. The standard foot of the RobCam is telescopic such that you can adjust the vertical position of the catch plates. The weight of the complete unit is 1.7 kg.
Obviously, the Robtelli RobCam is designed to accommodate plugged connectivity to future external measurement devices (temperature, moisture, light intensity). This makes it possible to include output from such devices into one report, as the RobCam will function as WiFi connection for the external devices.
This is customizable and depends on your needs. The standard solution is that you simply get an e-mail each day with overview of the detection results. You can also receive multiple reports per day, for instance in the high season, if so needed.
From Januar 2024 users will get access to a web paged overview of the state of their entire Robtelli fleet - stay tuned for further announcements!
The output of our AI is available in csv format files and can be pushed to your server. This may be the absolute number of insects detected, or the confirmed deltas, depending on your needs.
Robtelli is a startup offering integrated solutions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and actual intelligence (ai). This journey starts with our RobCam pest detector which uses a combination of optics, mechanics and deep neural networks to obtain early and robust detection of pests and beneficial insects.
We are here to provide the solutions needed. We earn the trust of our customers through dialogue and ongoing R&D. We synthesize solutions that work for the customers in practice, at a reasonable cost to both customer and Nature.
Our Patent Applied For AImechanical detector that has proven to be extremely effective in early detection of whiteflies, thrips and other pests. We have now also started to offer detection of beneficial insects, for most cost efficient biological application.
We offer you a free introductory live demonstration at your site, on the condition that you have WiFi up and running in the greenhouse or a WiFi router running close by. Robtelli can install our own WiFi repeater for the duration of the test (depending on your location) for a minor fee, if need be.
If you don't like what you see simply send the unit(s) back to us, we won't get angry with you, promise ! (only a little disappointed)
