Intelligent Pest Control System Won Gold Medal in the 2016 iGEM Competition

2021-06-23

The cultivation of cross disciplinary talents has resulted in great achievements! The NCTU_Formosa team of National Chiao Tung University combined biology and the Internet of Things to develop an intelligent pest control system. In October, the team participated in the 2016 International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition organized by Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States. The team stood out from among 300 international teams and won the gold medal, the best design and application, the best speech, and the best component combination special conference awards.

The NCTU_Formosa team has 8 years of competition experience. This year, the team combined biology and the Internet of Things (IoT) for the first time. Using the IoTtalk system developed by Professor Jason Lin Yi-Bing from the Department of Computer Science, the team made the use of IoT easier. The system can predict the number of pests, and through field environment monitoring, automatically decides the time and dosage of biological pesticide spraying. The biological pesticides are produced by using Escherichia coli to mass-produce biological pesticides that are environmentally friendly and non-harmful to beneficial insects and mammals. They can replace chemical pesticides, thus improving the abuse and residue problems of chemical pesticides and providing farmers with a new choice of biological pesticides.
