Automated Shark Spotting
The goal of the project is to develop a low-cost computer-vision-based automatic shark detection system for surveillance of beaches and surf breaks. The system will consist of imaging hardware, computing hardware equipped with shark detection software as well as an user interface. The system will become an integral element in the very successful South-African Shark Spotters program, with the goal of increasing the reliability of shark detection and prevention of human-shark conflict.
