“Through the ElephantEdge challenge, we are coming together as technology leaders to provide a much-needed solution to protect elephants whose habitats are under pressure, with poachers and trophy hunters causing additional, irreversible harm,” said Adam Benzion, co-founder of Hackster.io. “We are proud to support this project with Smart Parks and our partners, resulting in an open-source solution that will do good in the world.”
ElephantEdge Webinar 1: The Software
The ElephantEdge challenge is calling on the community to build ML models using the Edge Impulse Studio and tracking dashboards using Avnet’s IoTConnect, which will be deployed onto 10 production-grade collars manufactured by our engineering partner, Institute IRNAS, and deployed by Smart Parks.
In this first of two ElephantEdge webinars you’ll learn about the problems park rangers are facing and how to get started with IoTConnect and Edge Impulse Studio.
