About this project
Would you like to know if your trap has caught some crabs or lobsters before you go out and pull it up?
Wanna save some fuel and money by pulling up trap with a good catch at the right time?
Crabcather™ scouting camera mounted on your traps will give you high resolution pictures directly to your computer or smartphone. This way you can wait until the right moment before going out with your boat for pulling up your traps, and catch your fresh crabs and lobsters. You will save time pulling empty traps, and save fuel and money by sailing successful trips.
For the leisure fisher; ever wondered why some of your traps always seem to be empty. Maybe someone have been there before you? With Crabcatcher™ built in security system, an alarm will notify you if someone else is trying to pull up your traps. A built in camera will also make some nice shots of whoever it may be, and allows you to follow it up with legal actions.
Risks and challenges
We are a great team of product developement engineers and automation engineers, having close collaboration with local fishermen her in Aalesund, Norway.
We are currently looking into Crabcatcher models for both shallow water and ocean, which means different signal transmitting technologies. We will build prototypes to test out the reliabilities of the technology chosen, in rough environment on the west coast of Norway.
Funding our first step shall lead to enough knowledge to go for mass production and correct pricing in the market.
