I worked on a project to try to shoot mosquitoes with a laser. It was made with :
- raspberry pi 3
- raspi cam
- 2 galvanometers to control the direction of the laser
- a fast relay to switch on/off the laser
- some electronics to control the galvanometers with the raspi (mcp4922)
- opencv to track the moving object
and the laser ...
(not sure it will be able to shoot any mosquito )
I stopped this project because of the safety of the laser (too dangerous). But is it possible to find a real "eye safe" laser to kill mosquitoes ?
I saw similar projects saying they use "eye safe" lasers.
Hello @isingkarim, in case you still see my message, I would like to do similar project but to use the laser pointer to indicate where the mosquito is (on the wall) so that I can go and kill it myself .
If you ever posted your RPI work on a Github or somewhere else I'd appreciate you'd give me its link.
Thanks in advance!
