The SMAPPLAB  Smart Trap Solution belongs to the technologies available on the market that are shown on the SmartProtect Platform.

The tool is a decision support for effective plant protection, it can provide much more precise pest control assistance than previous trap systems. The Smart Trap solutions has a self-cleaning function and operates continuously during the whole season. The trap can take pictures automatically. In the same time it can collect the local meteorological data from the fields. The farmers can monitor online the forecast data and can protect the crops in the right time.  


The traps have on-board camera and sensors, they automatically collect daily catch count, identify pest species and measure local environmental parameters. The pictures are sent to the servers with species identification and catch counting is automatically performed by algorithms, then each catch is evaluated, togehter with meteorological data.

Farmers can also track flight season curves on a personal online dashboard as well as receive suggestion on ideal defence times to maximize efficiency.
