10 years of news and resources for members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
In order to protect endangered rhinos, the Kenya Wildlife Service has recently teamed up with the US-based Stimson Center and Linköping University in Sweden in a project called Ngulia, named after the Kenyan rhino sanctuary where the technology is to be implemented. The aim is to investigate how new technology and signal processing algorithms can be combined to create a smart savannah and to help stamp out poaching.
In this project, heterogeneos sensors, e.g. smart-phones, radar systems, heat-detection cameras, drones, microphones and gunshot detectors will be placed out on the reserve to keep track of the movements of both the animals and intruding poachers [1,2]. For example, it is possible, using heat-sensing cameras to monitor the area in the night; and with the aid of carefully-placed mobile telephones that also detect shots, the poachers can rapidly be located. Also, in a second phase, the use of unmanned aircraft is invisioned .
