#科技头条#【鲨鱼探测无人机 能探测水下危险】近日,澳大利亚悉尼科技大学(UTS)和无人机公司Westpac Little Ripper Lifesaver开发了一项新型无人机,能在水下探测到鲨鱼的出没并发出警报。通过人工智能技术,可以分析水的流动声,区分鲨鱼和其他海洋生物,以及冲浪者、游泳者、船只等物体。通过对架空影片的实时分析工作,信息可以立即转发到海滩救生员和海滩用户,进行紧急报警。

A drone that can spot sharks and warn people has been developed by Australian researchers.

The battery powered, unmanned drone uses an artificial intelligence technology to identify sharks and send out a safety warning through a megaphone.

The drones will be used to patrol many main beaches in Australia from the summer of 2017 or 2018.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The battery powered, unmanned drones uses an artificial intelligence technology to identify sharks and send out a safety warning through a megaphone.

The drone works via real time analysis of overhead footage, and information can be relayed immediately to emergency services, beach lifeguards and beach users to help make safe decisions about getting into the water.

The drone can distinguish between sharks and other marine life such as dolphins, rays and whales.

It's also capable of distinguishing surfers, swimmers, boats and other objects.
In 2016, there were 26 shark attacks recorded in Australia, including two fatalities, so it's hoped that the drones will help prevent these attacks.

The drone, developed by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and drone company Westpac Little Ripper Lifesaver, is 90 per cent accurate at detecting sharks.

The drone can distinguish between sharks and other marine life such as dolphins, rays and whales.

It's also capable of distinguishing surfers, swimmers, boats and other objects.

The drone works via real time analysis of overhead footage, and information can be relayed immediately to emergency services, beach lifeguards and beach users to help make safe decisions about getting into the water.

'The automated system for detection and identification of sharks in particular, and marine life/objects more generally, was developed using cutting edge deep neural networks and image processing techniques,' said Professor Michael Blumenstein, Head of the School of Software in the Faculty of Engineering and IT at UTS.
