Brazilian researchers are developing a new technology aimed at reducing collisions between vehicles and wildlife. Fernanda Delborgo Abra, founder and biologist at ViaFauna, has an animal detection electronics system called Passa-Bicho Sensor on the roadside. The company plans to test its prototype at the Luis de Kaynong College under the University of Sao Paulo to observe the climate tolerance of the device.
With the assistance of the São Paulo Research Foundation, the prototype has been developed, consisting of a number of motion sensors - transmitters and receivers, each covering a hot spot for high accidents. The transmitter fuel metering valve will send a beam of infrared light to the receiver. When an animal appears, it will interfere with the beam, then the sensor will send a signal and transmit information via radio, and then activate the electronic information panel, or in a simpler way - light up the 'animal-crossing' warning light The
ViaFauna's launch system is powered by solar panels, which target large and medium-sized animals weighing 6.6 pounds (about 3 kg), partly because Temperature Sensor they have an impact on road safety and, on the other, Its exploration technology level is limited.
