The targeted outcome for this project is to create and build a system that shall be placed alongside the roads where deer are often spotted in the area. The system shall detect an incoming car through a vibration sensor that is firmly mounted against the pavement or dirt road. Once movement is detected, the system will emit an ultrasonic frequency to alert the deer of potential harm. Deer shall either turn around and stop where they are at until the cars have passed. This system will interface with a vibration sensor Fung, Ho 5 that will detect a moving car and emit the signal through a piezo buzzer. The system must also be powered either by battery or by more sustainable means.
