Early animal detection

Arribada Initiative is building an early animal detection and warning system to alert communities to the presence of dangerous animals. Our system relies on thermal array sensors capable of taking video of an animal thermal signature. We hope to train an algorithm to automatically recognize dangerous animals and send an alert to the community.

We are posting periodic progress updates on WILDLABS.net. Our first post can be found here: https://www.wildlabs.net/resources/case-studies/hwc-tech-challenge-thermopile-sensor-project

Our 2nd progress update should be posted on WILDLABS shortly.

We would love any feedback or suggestions from the community on our project!
