This project seeks to construct a device to acoustically monitor Australian wildlife and to present the detected species and sound summaries to end users through a website or app. The box will record and analyse the sounds for bird and bat calls and relay the findings to a website or application.
The project has a number of different parts which are suitable to different students depending on your interest.
Research activities include:
- designing and building a Raspberry Pi-based bird and bat detector
- designing algorithms to detect birds and bats based on modern AI techniques including deep learning
- working with end users on interesting interfaces to access the collected data and promoted engagement and interest in the natural environment.
The goal of the project is to produce a working prototype system. Individual students will work on different parts of the project depending on their interest and expertise. We anticipate the outcomes will also lead to a research paper.
