Implementation of RapidAIM: Real-time monitoring for the presence and location of fruit fly (ST16009)

Key research provider: CSIRO

What’s it all about?

The objective of this project is to demonstrate the full service offering of ‘RapidAIM’ in five fruit-growing regions across Australia. This will involve optimisation of RapidAIM technology as a smart-trap solution that is capable of detecting and locating Queensland fruit fly and Mediterranean fruit fly in real time. The RapidAIM technology is comprised of a grid of instrumented, low-powered smart traps with patented sensors that detect behavioural fingerprints of fruit flies. Alerts of presence and location are sent instantly to end users via the cloud and the RapidAIM app. The outcomes of this project will be to validate the RapidAIM technology as an accurate smart trap surveillance solution that supports on-farm monitoring, early detection of the pest and supports area freedom.
