AI may be able to identify Bud Bugs before Infestations Break Out
A cambridge based start up company ‘Spotta’ has developed traps equipped with image recognition that can help hotels and homeowners detect the bugs at an early stage before the infestation gets out of control. The technology is a mix of computer vision that can recognise the insect accurately, and an internet connection that can send an alert when there is a problem before hotel guests find them.
The bug detection service costs around £60 per room per year and Spotta has two hotel chains and several independent hotels as customers. We eagerly await news from Spotta on their progress.
