A small device that identifies snakes and RF tags them for finding them later for capture.
The worst thing about having a snake in your home, Is the inability to find it without putting your life in danger. Sticking your hand into the ceiling and other crevises raises the odds of you getting bitten but at least you know where it is. The longer you leave it in there, however, the further it hides making it even more dangerous if it finds its way into wardrobes or kitchen cabinets.
A report by the World Health Organization reports 81000 to 138000 deaths per year from snakes with 5.4 million bites and 2.7 million envenomings. Children and workers are especially vulnerable.
Snakes are ectotherms, thus whenever they decide to hide somewhere their body temprature drops. The solution is a combination of a thermosensitive and motion sensitive camera.The two are connected with a chipset with one program directive. If it's small and moves but has a lower temprature than 30 to 40 degrees celcius the trap activates.
The trap fires an RF module that attatches to the snake's body. It limits its movement by weight and the tracking begins. Now you don't have to go looking for the snake, You know where it is. You can just wait for the experts to come get it. Plus you limit property damage incurred searching for it.
The attatchment to the snake is still unsolved, Any ideas on how it can be attatched to the snake without harming it?
