Elephant Detection for Farmer Safety
Installation Date: March 2018
• To detect movement of Elephants near farms and alert the farmers via SMS so that they stay.
• Lot of Vegetation.
• Technology used should not emit any harmful rays as this disturbs the behaviour of the animal.
Gave a successful alert on animal movements.
A fully solar-powered elephant intrusion detection system is implemented. 100m low-power PIR sensor Optex was used for detecting the motion of thermal objects. On intrusion, a system with a microcomputer and night vision camera is activated, and an image is captured. Further, the image is processed using a machine learning algorithm for detecting elephants. On successful elephant detection, the farmers around the area were given SMS to stay safe and an alert is given to the forest department with image. The back power is stored in lithium batters with a backup time of 3-4 days in a single charge.
