for Real-time wildlife monitoring and live behavioural analytics to reduce human wildlife conflict

Our solution in the challenge raised by WWF Rumania addresses the cost and reliability of wildlife tracking technology used for wildlife monitoring by developing an MVP adapted to the mountain landscape in the Carpathians free of expensive satellite data transmission and, as a result, can deliver almost real-time information to a central decision-making system.

Submitted to Real-time wildlife monitoring and live behavioural analytics to reduce human wildlife conflict

We want to create an automated system that senses the presence of the bison approaching the human habitat and induces their return in nature by dispatching loud human civilisation-like noises. We will also build a complex library of bison sounds, being able to catalogue their behavior through sound. This is a novel and soft approach to mitigate the human wildlife conflict, with development perspectives.

Geofencing Infrastructure

Submitted to Real-time wildlife monitoring and live behavioural analytics to reduce human wildlife conflict

Our aim is to create geofencing infrastructure, that consists of a LoRa network and a series of sensors installed on the bison, that can inform a system hosted in the cloud when the bison is approaching the human habitat. The mountainous Armenis area is a challenging one, so we think we and our partner FlashNET are best suited to design an infrastructure that can be successfully implemented.
