520 |a The introduction of mammalian pests to New Zealand has contributed to the extinction of many native bird species, the devastation of native bush, and the spread of tuberculosis in cattle. Environmental, economic and cultural drivers have been leading the quest for an innovative and cost effective humane pest control system yet, despite this impetus, the solution remains elusive. Using an earlier prototype developed by pest control initiative Completing the Arsenal for Possum and Tuberculosis Control (CAPTB), this practice-based project integrates human centered design principles, a design for commercialisation approach and a variety of cutting edge technologies to produce a long life self-resetting delivery mechanism that is both user-friendly and commercially viable.
