About Us

Wild pigs are a threat to the environment, and the current solutions are not completely hassle free. With issues regarding false trappings of animals, our solution aims to use the power of IoT to recognize animals going into traps and only close the trap when needed. The trap will keep the user informed by sending them a text message.

How does it work?

The module can be attached to standard pig traps.

The product itself is powered off the Raspberry Pi 3B running Tensorflow
