Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
- Early fire detection through the sensing of low humidity, higher temperatures, increasing wind speeds, imaging to see smoke, and traditional smoke detection. People in the area who see or smell a fire should be able to hit a fixed or mobile panic button that alerts nearby authorities so they can take early action before the fire spreads.
- The detection of deforestation can be achieved through the combination of motion detectors, cameras, computer vision and microphones. Motion detectors can tell cameras when to take a picture and computer vision can try to identify what’s in the picture. Microphones will capture audio listening for the sounds of chainsaws or axes chopping down trees. People will augment computer vision and audio recordings to provide further analysis.
- Bio-diversity around the world has been negatively impacted as a result of many animal species becoming extinct or on the verge of extinction. The combination of motion detectors, microphones, cameras and computer vision can detect wildlife and monitor their movements, feeding habits and mating as well as the presence of hunters and the sound of gunshots.
