Development Of An Experimental System For Mapping Of Lobesia Botrana Population In Cyprus Using Automated Traps And Wireless Communication And Positioning Systems
The Vineflygis Project aims to increase agricultural production by helping the farmers control the use of pesticides at the right time with the right amount. These are achieved by means of advanced technological systems. The main aim of this project is to collect statistical data by capturing specific types of pests by number of traps which contain pheromones that attract the type of pests in investigation and send the count by wireless technology to a database where all these records are stored and compared. Based on these data, a graphical chart is generated showing this information. This whole process works fully automated and does not need constant interaction by humans. The locations are carefully examined and selected by satellite images. Each location will include number of traps, called DELTA Traps (image on the right) with a central main unit.
