Khethi Rakshak - Protect your crop from animals and birds
Khethi Rakshak – A Machine 2 Machine (M2M) Communication device protects crops from wild animals and birds.
The problem of wild animal attacks on crop fields i.e. crop vandalization is becoming a very common phenomenon in the state of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and many other states. Wild animals like Monkeys, Estray animals especially cows and Buffaloes, Wild Dogs, nilgais, Bisons, Elephants, Deer, Wild Pigs and even Birds like Parakeets cause a lot of damage to crops either by running over them or eating them and vandalizing them completely. This leads to poor yield of crops.
These animals attack on fruit orchards and destroy the flowerings and fruits. In both cases, this leads to significant financial loss to the farmers and orchard owners. The problem is so pronounced that sometimes farmers decide to leave the area barren due to these animal attacks.
It has been estimated that at minimum conservative average damage per household of ₹ 6,000, 15 million families could suffer a cumulative loss of ₹ 9,000 crore every year. This is a very huge amount to loose in a country like India.
Khethi Rakshak system is very effective in driving-off the animals from the fields and keeping them away. The device automatically get switch on based on the system time or can be switched on manually using smart phone. With one time charging of the device for 4-6 hours the device works approx. 14 hours.
The device can be charged through 230Volts AC power or when there is no source of AC power to the farmer in the field can charge the device using 12V Solar panel. The device is equipped with Lithium-ion battery, with 14 hours of power backup with one charge. The device works on Single phase or three phase power.
The system is very adaptive to nature. We are using advanced machine 2 machine learning techniques in the system. Due to this, the system can be trained to release different spices of alarm/predatory/distress calls.
The advance system equipped with voice recorders that records local noises and send them to cloud server, we make use of these noises to customise the voice files there by the system makes it highly adaptable to the local sites of deployment. Thus the system is not limited to the detection of only particular type of animals. This makes it suitable for different areas of our country.
The device also comes with several alerts like Device ON/OFF, Auto switch from AC power to Solar, Low battery alerts, Box tampering alert, Power cut- off, Device theft alert, Shock alerts, Overheat alerts, Maintenance alerts etc.
