A robot equipped with two airsoft turrets follows domestic animals around and protects them by shooting at predators.
It doesn't shoot at people and the animals in its care. Anything else gets a warning shot, followed shortly by a barrage of airsoft bullets.
Make domestic animals safer outside.
Reduce losses due to predators.
Make wild predators less interested in living near people.
Two automated airsoft turrets are mounted on a 4-wheel drive rover. The rover is equipped with 360 degrees of thermal cameras in addition to each turret having its own camera. The software continuously scans for signs of predators crouching nearby. The robots' two turrets can deter multiple attackers simultaneously.
The robot is with the herd/coop 24 hours per day so that the animals get used to it. It charges at night by parking itself above an inductive charger.
The robot takes strategic positions from which it monitors an entire perimeter where the animals are grazing. If the location is unfavorable for a good overview, the robot patrols the area by changing positions.
If the animals start screaming the robot quickly moves towards the screams and starts shooting at anything that moves, has a heat signature, and is not a member of the herd.
In addition to airsoft bullets, the robot could sound an alarm or some sound that universally scares the predators. It could also have a built in pepper spray if bears and wolves are the problem.
