BCB - Key features and benefits - Overview
BCB Devices have several ways to sense the environment in order to detect relevant events that could lead to avoid an ongoing situation; images, sounds, motion are processed and interpreted by the devices, all this happens in real time and the detected events are broadcast to other BCB devices (If any) as they can operate in stand-alone mode.
BCB Devices provide a high customization level, however a set of standard or essential devices are in place, Smart Cameras specially trained to detect individual Jaguars, Regional Cores which allow to build cells of interconnected devices, Panic Buttons to allow local population to engage with the cause of protecting Jaguars, Smart transit signals and Smarts Fences, they all share some properties such as Geo-localization, #LoRa connectivity and low power consumption.
Device auto-discovery and automatic handshaking based on proximity allows an easy and cost effective BCB deployment. Once the terrain is mapped the devices will do the rest. Cost is a key factor for BCB and that's why no licenses are needed to make it work, unless some special requirement is imposed. This is one of the design drivers for BCB taking into account that Jaguars need several kilometres to do what they do, this fact demands low cost for equipment and maintenance.
Wise use of energy. A key design driver for BCB is to use energy wisely; this is because of two particular reasons, the first one and the most important is to reduce the generation of hard to biodegrade waste like dead batteries; the second one is imposed by the landscape itself, energy sources are not abundant on the wild side. Solar power, rechargeable batteries and low power consumption computing makes a huge difference in that regard while keeping equipment maintenance costs as low as possible.
The reactive, synchronized and intelligent behavior of BCB as a whole is due to its underlying proprietary software architecture that I call DNNA which stands for Distributed Neural Network Architecture. DNNA is inspired by a living thing, To put it shortly every sensor on a BCB device converts electrical signals into a kind of Neurotransmitter. Those NTs influence the level of attention of each device and they are also transmitted to the entire cell of devices, lets say that those NTs go over the air as chemical Neurotransmitters would spread inside veins and arteries. Each device will react accordingly based on the type of NT, the situation, the location and frequency of the events.
