AI Use Case

Monitor animal populations

Detecting, identifying and monitoring animal populations is especially useful when they are in the wild and potentially at risk. Typically it requires a network of static camera traps or acoustic recorders but can also be extended to include mobile sensors.



Risk reduction - Environmental impact,Operational Support - Situational awareness
