Video stands to be the next generation of camera traps, providing more information about each animal that is recorded, enhancing opportunities for species and individual recognition, along with behavioural observations. Traditional camera traps provide massive data-bases that many organisations are struggling to manage.
Capability to develop
- Automated recognition of species and individuals in video and still images.
- User-friendly interfaces and data management.
- Collection of behavioural data such as direction and speed of movement from video.
Like audio analysis, this is a major venture with potential to be national in scale with appropriate partners such as State and Federal agencies, and NGOs.
