Collision detector

Development of a device that, once installed on the grounding cable of high-voltage lines, is capable of detecting the collision of birds with the same, transmitting it to a PC and send a signal to a mobile device to advise of the event in real-time. In this way, personnel could be sent directly to the area to locate the affected bird and, if at all possible, take it to a specialised recovery centre.
