Smart Savannahs

Smart Savannahs is an initiative from Linköping University, as a technical demonstrator of research performed within the strategic research environment Security Link The demonstrator is being deployed in Ngulia, 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.
