Scarebot Scares Predators

Steven Hall and Randy Price of the LSU AgCenter have found an answer to the question, how do you keep predator birds away from growing catfish and crawfish in ponds? The answer is Scarebot, a robotic boat that is solar powered and tools around about 5 - 7 mph. When its IR sensor knows a bird is nearing, it triggers a water canon to chase it away.

The bot recently gained attention from John Cole of Tennessee's Mt. Pelia Innovative Solutions who sees the Scarebot as a good thing and will help fund its production.
