We were approached by our client to take their proof-of-concept design and in a very short timescale develop prototypes ready for customer validation trials. The concept involved adding a modem and sensor to a live trapping cage to detect, and report, when a door falls (i.e. trap activated).
Additionally, the unit was to be battery powered for hourly reports along with a weatherproof enclosure for outdoor deployment. Our design offered a number of improvements over the proof-of-concept including more robust wireless communication to the server, an improved user interface, and more reliable sensing method.
