Autonomous Vehicle Design for Predator Proof Fence Monitoring
Research presented here focuses on developing a new mobile platform, an autonomous cable car, which can be implemented with minimal infrastructure additions, to new and existing reserves, for the reliable fence monitoring. Autonomous cable car solution for infrastructure monitoring is selected after comprehensive investigation in current practices and working environment properties. Inland conservation reserves rely on predator proof fencing in order to separate the conservation reserve from the surrounding environment. The critical infrastructure component, in terms of protecting the animals, and in terms of cost is the fence itself. It requires regular and frequent monitoring in order to maintain its integrity and its effectiveness. Currently used surveillance platforms are often not capable of meeting harsh outdoor requirements.
