Humans have increased their activities in the recent past leaving behind the remnants for the wildlife around. Activities like expanding agricultural fields, building new network of roads and rapid urbanization have shrunk the forest area and reduced the habitat of wildlife into small patches. This division of wildlife is often referred to as fragmentation.
Chandrapura, Maharashtra has a huge problem of Human-Animal Conflict where thousands of crop-raiding cases are getting reported annually. Apart from the traditional practices that farmers use to protect their crops from wild animal intrusion, there are not many technical solutions available to help them.
Existing methods like electric fences are no longer efficient in solving such conflicts hence this should be replaced by much smarter, safer and effective device called ANIDERS. This smart solution can protect the crops from wild animals without causing any harm to the wildlife.
It can protect the crops from animals like: Elephants, Nilgai, Wild Boar, Rabbits, Deer, Etc.
It can also protect the people living around forests from wild cats like: Tiger, Leopards, etc.
How ANIDERS works?
ANIDERS is one machine that works like an automatic scarecrow. It uses Infrared Sensors to detect any animal entering the farm and then it uses a light and sound alarm system to repel the detected animal away from the farmland. Device is solar powered, hence does not need any power supply to charge its battery. It charges itself during the day and then works throughout night.
ANIDERS is robust and can be used in any kind of weather. Using ANIDERS is remarkably simple, there is no need to set up any electrical connection. It is an independent unit that can be installed anywhere in the farmland with access to sunlight.
It can replace the need of electric fence as it builds a virtual fence around the farmland instead of making a physical fence. It is safe for the farmers and for the wild animals as well.
