Juliaan Kleinloog visited Agrosol vineyard seminar in Hungary

Tags : 

Area Sales Manager of Bird Control Group, Juliaan Kleinloog visited Agrosol vineyard seminar in Hungary. The seminar is organised by Agrosol 2000 which is one of the reseller of Bird Control Group specialised in the solutions for agricultural industry in Hungary. Bird Control Group, Agrosol 2000, Syngenta and some local grape growers were participants of this event. The seminar was dedicated to learn about new agricultural solutions for pest controllers. The biggest challenge they see is that there is no effective and at the same time sustainable solution for pest controllers. Juliaan Kleinloog discussed with the participants about EU Life Laser Fence project that Bird Control Group is involved in and the possibilities of using the laser fence to repel pest animals. The participants of the event thought that the technology would be quite useful and they would like to know the costs of such laser fence and the applications of the technology in the future.

Life Laser Fence at LJMU Faculty of Engineering and Technology Research Week

Tags : 

Research Week at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) at Liverpool John Moores University celebrates the significant contribution that postgraduate research students (PGRs) make to academic life, allowing students a platform to share their own research and gain valuable feedback. More than 150 PGRs participate in the event and welcome a range of external keynote speakers.

As part of the activities of this year’s Research Week, Some of the many research projects in the faculty were invited to have a stand display and explain their projects. This is a direct response to queries from PGR students who wanted to know a bit more about the many and varied areas of research where the FET is involved and the practical applications of the different areas of expertise.

LIFE Laser Fence was present at this year’s FET Research Week and attracted considerable attention from the research students. They clearly showed an understanding of the needs for systems like these, which can in an environmentally friendly manner deal with the problem of unwanted animals in agricultural settings.

Participation of PGRs also enhances understanding of current post-graduate research activity across the Faculty and promotes inter-faculty communication and research networks, providing students with the opportunity to support like-minded colleagues. The conference develops researching skills crucial to presenting, writing, poster preparation and communicating research to an audience.

Development of Remote interlock switch for safe operations in the field

Tags : 

Bird Control Group is continuously looking for ways to improve the LIFE Laser Fence prototypes with regards to safety and security. Operating laser equipment in the fields requires some safety measures. Usually most measures from Bird Control Group and her products are sufficient for having a laser operational. For having these types of lasers operational in an unsupervised way, the area must be enclosed for the public to prevent possible exposure to laser light. Although some of the LIFE Laser Fence test locations are not, or cannot be, fully enclosed by for example fences. To have these systems operational, now some of the test locations have the devices operational while supervised. This takes a lot of effort and time from staff members of the test site.

Bird Control Group has been developing a LIFE Laser Fence remote control prototype for switching the systems on or off remotely. With these remote-control prototypes, test locations will be able to switch off one or multiple devices remotely when public may enter the area. This will potentially save a lot of time and effort from the staff, therefor still having time to do other activities in the vicinity of the system, but not sitting next to it. Most important, safe operations can continue for multiple systems.

The development of this remote-control prototype started in June 2018 and the first units will possibly be available for the first LIFE Laser Fence locations in August 2018.
