This Report presents the results of tests of B-finder System prototype. The tests were performed between 11.11.2017 and 11.11.2019.
The research was funded by EMPEKO S.A. and R&D grants. In 2017 EMPEKO S.A. started the project POIR.01.02.00-00-0233/16 co-financed by the National Centre for Research and Development. During this project fallowing works were done:
- the conceptual, laboratory, field and computing works;
- the prototype integration;
- the test field preparation;
- the prototype assembly on wind turbine;
- the prototype test in real condition started on 2017.11.11;
- the 2-year prototype test in real condition performed.
Since April 2019 the research has been a part of the project RPWP.01.02.00-30-0008/17 co-financed by Marshal Office of the Wielkopolska Region in Poznan.
This Report is the first public presentation of the results of B-finder prototype tests. The description of the hardware and software is limited and will be published in other documents. This Report is focused on general presentation of the conducted experiments and their results, which show the efficiency of detection of bat and bird fatality.
Since January 2017 the patent protection based on Polish patent P.416126 is part of the project POIR.02.03.04-30-0013/16 co-financed by Polish Agency for Enterprise Development.
