In order to prevent the further proliferation and spread of RIFA in our country, reduce the serious harm caused by RIFA populations to agricultural and forestry production, human health, public safety and the ecological environment. A new type of trap based on mobile function, obstacle clearance function, energy supply function, signal transmission function and trapping function has been developed. The new remote controlled RIFA trap is improved and upgraded on the basis of the existing traditional traps. The research and development of this trap not only advances the process of emergency trapping of RIFA in my country, but also provides a new way for artificial intelligence to prevent and control RIFA in the future.
