A Proposed IoT Smart Trap using Computer Vision for Sustainable Pest Control in Coffee Culture

04/09/2020 ∙ by Vitor Alexandre Campos Figueiredo, et al. ∙ 0

The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as a multi-purpose technology with enormous potential for improving the quality of life in several areas. In particular, IoT has been applied in agriculture to make it more sustainable ecologically. For instance, electronic traps have the potential to perform pest control without any pesticide. In this paper, a smart trap with IoT capabilities that uses computer vision to identify the insect of interest is proposed. The solution includes 1) an embedded system with camera, GPS sensor and motor actuators; 2) an IoT middleware as database service provider, and 3) a Web application to present data by a configurable heat map. The demonstration of proposed solution is exposed and the main conclusions are the perception about pest concentration at the plantation and the viability as alternative pest control over traditional control based on pesticides.
