The need for an effective bird deterrent is important in many of today's industries. In
the past there have been many attempts to develop a successful system with few
achieving adequate results. The aim of this project was to develop and design an
autonomous system that creates minimal disturbance whilst being effective in bird
An initial investigation and evaluation into the current types of bird deterrent systems
was performed and from this the method of deterrence for the designed system was
selected. Once the conceptual design was completed the mechanical, electrical and
software sections of the system were designed in detail and partially constructed to
discover the effectiveness of the system.
During the initial implementation of the system, expected and unexpected problems in
the design arose that needed dealt with. The encountered problems were then listed in
each of there relative sections and supplied with solutions and suggestions for a design
Once this system has been fully developed, it will provide a frame work for multiple
types of deterrent with the possibility for use in a variety of applications.
