SMAPP LAB was founded with a passion for creating the world's first affordable and scalable insect monitoring technology to help farmers grow more with less. After three years of development and research, they created the SMAPP LAB Mini product line, which can monitor more than 180 different insects.
With their real-time digital data collection device, they can change the old-school manual monitoring labor-heavy process to a user-friendly, fully automated, accurate and effective alternative.
They call their solution an insect monitoring service rather than a smart trap, because they do not just collect the data. Instead, they analyze and provide actionable insight to the farmers—precisely the best time window to use the insecticide in their field.
But they are not stopping here, thanks to ESA they will expand their solution to space. They are developing IoT traps equipped with a satellite module for areas with no mobile coverage and integrating farm-level and satellite data for forecasting models. Therefore nobody will be left out and they can help millions of farmers all over the world.
