He collected and labeled a dataset of rabbits in his backyard, then trained a computer vision model to identify them and wired up a Raspberry Pi to the model, a camera and a bluetooth speaker to spot and spook any unwanted visitors to his vegetable garden.
The best part: he decided to open source the whole thing!

Samrat might want to also look at the 'pi noir' camera along with an IR light, to make sure the pesky rabbits don't eat his veg at night ;)
I'm tempted to try something similar to scare cats away from my 'wildlife camera'.
Kind of curious if you could run the ML inference on the pi itself too?
