“An open-source IoT platform to monitor and prevent epidemics such as Malaria, Dengue and the Zika Virus.
This solar-powered device eliminates mosquito larvae in stagnant water bodies such as water tanks, swamps and micro-dams. The system allows mosquitoes to lay eggs at dawn and dusk and the intermittent ripples during the day prevent larvae from breathing at the surface. In addition, a built-in microphone captures the wing-beat frequencies of mosquitoes that are naturally attracted to standing water, helping us to identify the species and sex of the mosquito. With a network of these connected devices installed among at-risk populations, we will obtain a real-time estimate of the presence of dangerous mosquitoes. Using this data, we will create the early warning system for all mosquito-borne epidemics. Heres a video overview: https://bit.ly/3jxNbua [https://bit.ly/3jxNbua]. We invite researchers, makers and mosquito-haters to share their feedback and collaborate with us for this global health challenge.”
