Smith robotics Ltd are thrilled to announce that their bat detectors developed by Phil Atkin are now available to buy prebuilt and tested on their online shop shop.smithrobotics.co.uk.

iPistrelle 🦇
The handheld bat detector offers features that can detect and analyse bat calls through automatic scanning, allowing for effortless ‘eyes to the skies’ operations. This detector can be connected to an external speaker, with an audio output over a headphone socket.
With the LEDs on it, you can use it for bat walks as a detector or as a time expansion detector.

PippyG 🦇
This is a more stripped-back version of the PiPistrelle, using a class-compliant USB microphone out of the box. This has the ability to record 384kHz/16-bit waves to a MicroSD card, producing high-quality audio files. The PippyG is powered by 3 AA batteries and has a runtime of 4 to 7 days!
