R.A.T'S - Rodent Autonomous Terminator System

We are working on implementing a semi-autonomous pest control system called RATS (Rodent Autonomous Terminator System). The system involves a set of tunnels and a quad-copter based drone to deliver rodent poison.

We utilise a microprocessor based sensing system to detect rodent presence in tunnels equipped with sensors. The GPS coordinates of the rodent presence is loaded as a waypoint into the drone Mission Planner software and the drone autonomously drops a quantity of approved rodent poison targeted to the detected presence.
