Insects Counting for Integrated Pest Control

Vision Systems

Specialvideo has developed a vision system for counting particular insects, which are used in the integrated pest management.

The necessity to limit or exclude the use of chemical pesticides has lead many farmers to rely on integrated pest control. This is done in order to have both a better products quality and a reduced land poisoning.

The vision system developed by Specialvideo automatically counts the insects number while they are aspired and captured for distribution.

The program allows to manage different insects species and various air flow velocity.
This is an important feature, since it has been necessary to regulate the air flux depending on the kind of insect.


  • Possibility to work with more types of insects
  • Error term smaller than 1%
  • Adaptable to different air flow speeds
