EXOVIEWER EURECAT

Prototype for the monitoring and control of exotic species.

The EXOVIEWER project develops a station prototype that detects invasive exotic species from abroad.

EXOVIEWER integrates multi-capture insect traps in a single device (prototype in trailer format) to obtain photographs of the capture sheets, from cameras, and send them for identification and subsequent classification.

The monitoring of the insects will serve to have an almost real-time control, through the cameras and physical captures in the sheets, of the evolution of each species and to be able to take the pertinent preventive measures that will improve the competitiveness of the company.

The challenge is to integrate more than one trap for the multispecies capture and to be able to move it to the most appropriate location to monitor it from the most opportune biological point of view.

The project is coordinated by the Catalan meat and alternative protein cluster INNOVACC. The operational group is led by Grup Gepork and has the participation of Selección Batallé and the support of Eurecat.
