Solar-powered Edge Computing Platform for Automated Pest Bird Repellent System

Primary supervisor

Adel Nadjaran Toosi

Research area

Data Engineering

This project aims to build an automated bird repellent system to detect and identify pest birds and repel them from the farming area by frightening them. An Edge computing platform is embedded in a network of devices to bring application execution close to the data source and overcome challenges with high volumes of data and the need for automated, near real-time system responsiveness. The arrangement of electricity for devices in farming areas is also challenging. Thus, we intend to make our system fully off-grid by the deployment of solar-powered devices.
