Wildlife Surveillance Competition

With worldwide trade in illegal ivory and fur booming, many species of elephant, rhinos and bigger predators are closer than ever to extinction. Emerging Industry 4.0 technologies can help authorities take on the fight against poachers and illegal hunting in wildlife designated areas. This event will look into how emerging technologies can assist in wildlife surveillance. The 30th CIRP design conference 2020 will provide its participants with an experience of using their inventions to monitor wildlife at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
