BIG CAT BROTHER - Use Cases
Early detection of suspected hunting scenarios
By deploying Regional Cores and specially trained sensors it is possible to early detect a hunting scenario given some details about well known hunting logistics such as arriving in an engine power boat, the presence of target animal, sounds etc. This is possible because all of the events being detected by BCB device are analyzed taking into account the Geolocation and Time. The correlation of events can determine a suspected situation and send the alerts accordingly. The correlation rules can be defined according to every scenario. Everything is processed in real time and according to the complexity of the deployment it can collect events from several BCB cells allowing to cover a large territory.
BIG CAT BROTHER
CAN DO FOR US
AND FOR YOUR LIVESTOCK
Avoid road accidents.
The event correlation plays a role here too, Jaguars detected near roads can be integrated with smart transit signals to warn drivers about an affective presence of protected wildlife. Smart fences (for roads) can be deployed as well to minimize the amount of Smart Cameras. The events can also be triggers by humans by using Panic Buttons.
Minimizing human - Jaguar conflicts.
The most recent additions to BCB are meant to be deployed in private property and domestic animals (Smart Fences and Cow Collars) as an initiative to provide early alert about potential Jaguar attacks that will end in retaliation killings. This initiatives are meant to be synchronized with local governments to avoid the bad usage of this technology.
Besides my admiration for what Rewilding Argentina is doing in terms of Jaguars they proved a valuable point: Nothing will work if people doesn't feel empathy for Jaguars. Some of the BCB devices are meant to engage people by allow them to know what are the causes and little thing people can do to understand them and to protect them.
Effectively collect and retrieve information regarding Jaguars.
Having state-of-the-art devices with Artificial Intelligence on them means that the information gather with the system is effective, no empty pictures requiring hours to filter. The technology is not there yet but expect to see in the future other features such as identifying Jaguar gestures, it could be tell lots of things about them in many regards, including their health.
