Wildlife Protection System to continue Trials

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Last year Kootenay National Park in British Columbia served as the proving ground for the world's first real-time, infrared wildlife detection system.

Developed by InTranstech, the system uses state-of-the-art infrared cameras to "see" animals on or near a roadway, and is linked to highway signs which alert motorists to that fact. The cameras were originally designed to detect missiles, and provide the ability to distinguish between ordinary traffic and moose or deer. An explantion of the system can be seen here.

Initial tests were considered a success and trials will continue this Spring, with an expected conclusion in the Fall of 2003.
