Smart Savannahs

Smart Savannahs is an initiative from Linköping University, as a technical demonstrator of research performed within the strategic research environment Security Link www.security-link.se. The demonstrator is being deployed in Ngulia www.projectngulia.org, while development and tests will first be performed at Kolmården Zoo. The software platform, demonstrated for the Swedish king below, consists of a smartphone app for the rangers, and a backend solution accessible from for instance a tablet for the commanders and researchers. The app is both a communication device and an input device for the rangers where they report animal observations and indications of intrusion. The backend solution is a surveillance monitor, and an administrative tool for the commanders. Sensor systems will complement the software platform with situational awareness information.
