To prevent serious damage by wildlife to rice paddies, such as wild boar ravaging crops in Chiba Prefecture, the JA (Japan Agricultural Cooperatives) of Kisarazu City have released a “secret weapon”: a robot scarecrow modeled on a Hokkaido wolf, the “Super Monster Wolf.” It barks and howls with a great vigor up to 90 decibels, and it has infrared sensors that cause the wolf’s eyes to flicker red like a flame when agricultural pests like boar or deer are detected
The JA has developed the Super Monster Wolf with the cooperative research of Hokkaido University, Tokyo University of Agriculture and University, and Okita Seiki Corporation over the past seven years
Besides loud wolf noises, the robot scarecrow can produce a variety of surprising sounds such as the firing of a gun as well as several dozen artificial sounds that pest species find uncomfortable, and it can blast these noises over area is about 1 square kilometer. For power the Super Monster Wolf is connected to a battery and solar panel

  2. Unfortunately, the “secret weapon” doesn’t work against plant diseases and harmful insects…
