Remote Vibroacoustic surveillance of trees and wooden structures against borers

Quantity

Listening to the trees: We introduce a remotely controlled device that records and wirelessly transmits on a scheduled basis, short recordings of the internal vibrations of a tree to a server.

In short, it contains a piezoelectric transducer (i.e. not a microphone, rather a 'seismometer') that turns into recordings the vibrations originating from pests feeding and moving inside the tree (borers).  

Two modes of operation: a) listen in situ through earphones, or b) transmit the recordings to the INSECTRONICS server. Customers have free access to the server.

The user can listen remotely to infer the infestation state of the tree with wood-boring insects that feed or move inside the tree. The recordings can be downloaded from the server. It is compact and weatherproof, suitable for functioning in the field.

No need to recharge, it has an embedded solar panel that provides enough power for its low-power electronics.

Included: 2 drill bits, 2 adapters for drill bits that also function as waveguides, 2 independent waveguides, earphones, a device. 

Targeted pests: Xylotrechus chinensis, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Red palm weevil), mountain bark beetle, Rhynchophorus palmarum, Aromia bungii (Red necked longicorn), Anoplophora glabripennis (Asian longhorn beetle) and Anoplophora chinensis (Citrus longhorn beetle)
