EvictBot / Service during Earthquake


The head of Iran’s Seismology Institute says the risk of a major earthquake in the capital city of Tehran has decreased. While the estimations suggest that at least 50 million rats live in this capital city, several Iranian officials have voiced concerns over the growing risk of rodents threatening the health and safety of residents in the case of a possible disaster.
EvictBot uses the drones that are equipped with ultrasonic sound repellent devices. Immediately after earthquake, sensors release the drones from their shelters. they fly over city and land on specific places for emitting high-frequency sound waves to frighten and repel rodents.
