Smart Speaker for Bird Control

 

Requirement

Develop a system that deters birds from large ponds, to reduce strike risks during an aircraft’s take-off or landing. The systems will be deployed near several floating docks and will play sounds to ward off birds (based on schedules). Since there is no scope for internet connections, the system must support a local network.

Solution

Built an audio management platform using a Raspberry Pi for creating a schedule-based playlist. The Raspberry Pi acts as a wireless access point, running a standalone network. This was done using the inbuilt wireless features of the Raspberry Pi 4 and configuring a static IP address for the Raspberry Pi.
