Non-invasive monitoring of rare wildlife populations

Project Description

This project is to develop non-invasive techniques to monitor wildlife populations. Since it is costly and difficult to survey wildlife habitat, the project aims to explore cost-effective and efficient methods to detect and assess wildlife in a relative large area. A wireless sensor network will be build up to sample and analyze rare species without directly handling animals. Different sensors such as camera, force sensors, sound sensors etc will be deployed and sensory data will be collected and analyzed. Machine learning algorithms will be explored to process the sensory data evaluate the wildlife habitat.
