The application, dubbed “Protection Assistant for Wildlife Security” or PAWS, uses mathematical models to effectively analyze data from previous patrols and evidence of poaching. The more data fed to the application, the more it can “learn” the topography, terrain, natural paths, foot traffic and animal traffic of the protective area.
As a result, the application can map out practical patrol routes that can minimize time, energy and resources. The application also has the ability to randomize patrol routes, making it difficult for poachers to predict any types of discernible patterns.
