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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
