dc.description.abstractThis thesis is comprised of two projects related to mosquito sensing technologies. In the first project, a novel method is proposed in which sound waves with high particle velocities are used to potentially disrupt the mating process in mosquitoes. The experimental setup and the results are elucidated in this thesis. The second project is about the design of an underwater depth finding sensor module which is used in an autonomous remote operated vehicle developed by the Robotic Swarm Control Lab to kill mosquito larvae in water bodies. The analog circuit design and the embedded programming are shown in this thesis.
