Innovation Description

VecTech sprung from the VectorWEB project, low-cost network of cloud connected ovitraps for automated mosquito surveillance. Development of a novel low-cost, cloud connected system of smart ovitraps that will provide real-time mosquito surveillance data to health administrators, communities, and individuals. This proposed mosquito surveillance allows for outbreak modeling, targeted resource allocation/redirection, and community-driven interventions.
