PATS-C – reliable automated real-time scouting of flying insects

Fast, easy and accurate – helps boost crop quality while saving costs

  • Saves time & labour – reduces physical scouting rounds
  • Promotes timely intervention – due to high frequency monitoring, pests are spot at early stage – detecting outbreaks up to 5 weeks earlier than existing methods
  • Easy interpretation of data – user friendly web-based dashboard displays monitoring data in useful graphs
  • Suitable for all protected crops – works well in both high-tech and low-tech production systems
  • Focuses on moth pests – helps prevent caterpillars from wreaking havoc

How PATS-C works

  • PATS-C watches all flight movements in the airspace above your crop
    •    The LED module illuminates night-active insects with infrared
    •    The camera module films and tracks the insects in 3D
  • The collected videos are sent to the cloud, where they are analysed and presented on the web-based dashboard
  • The dashboard shows how many flights of an insect the camera has seen, and during which hours of the day the insects was most active
  • With 1 PATS-C per hectare, we take a sample of 1.000 m² of the greenhouse, allowing you to catch the crucial early signs of insect activity
