Luke Ferguson, Product Design with Professional Experience BSc (Hons) has been commended in the Synergy Medical Technologies Award for Demonstrating Innovation, Creativity, Purpose and Vision for his Banshee project.
Banshee is an agricultural theft deterrent utilising a series of three individual systems operating simultaneously to effectively deter opportunistic thieves. A 90 second coloured smoke screen accompanied by a 103 decibel klaxon and 20htz strobing system ensure that a thief’s ability to successfully commit a theft is significantly reduced. Providing a disorientating, uncomfortable experience for anyone within a close proximity, Banshee ensures that a farmers most valuable assets remain unreachable. Three PIR sensors create a 360 degree virtual barrier around any agricultural vehicle, providing a detection distance of approximately 6m.
