Researchers at the University of Huelva are using images of Doñana National Park to study the behaviour of the fauna. Using artificial intelligence, they are able to automatically track the park's biodiversity.
This project is an initiative of the UHU (University of Huelva) and it has been named 'Automatic system for biodiversity census and monitoring using deep learning techniques (Deep Learning DL): AI-CENSUS'. It could become a less invasive model for monitoring fauna and in the future it is expected to be used in other protected areas.
In this project, data are collected through photo-trapping cameras that are distributed throughout the park. These images are then automatically analysed thanks to artificial intelligence, and the animals can be recorded and analysed. Thus, by means of new technologies it is possible to monitor the park's biodiversity in real time.
The biggest achievement of the project is that it reduces the time it takes to perform an analysis and thus act much faster when necessary.
At Air Institute we strive to implement new technologies for the preservation of the natural environment, allowing us to keep green areas clean, efficiently and sustainably.
