AI Kills Cockroaches: A Revolutionary New Pest Control Method

The AI-controlled robotic Laser can kill cockroaches

Researchers have developed a device which uses machine vision in order to detect cockroaches. They then zap the cockroaches with a laser. The researchers say that the method is a more eco-friendly and cheaper alternative to insecticides.

Ildar Rakhmatulin, from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, along with his colleagues, equipped a laser system with two cameras, and a computer that runs an AI model which can be programmed to target specific types of insects.
