WPSWATCH WORKS TO PROTECT THE MOST ENDANGERED WILDLIFE AND ECOSYSTEMS

We've created a centralized monitoring system, wpsWatch, which utilizes remotely deployed field cameras to transmit images of wildlife and potential human threats in real time.

These cameras are typically deployed outside the range of established communication networks and integrates multiple feeds from the field into a single display, allowing for a holistic view of activity in a given area. wpsWatch technology can be deployed across a variety of communication networks, such as cellular, repeater, and mesh networks.

MONITORING WILDLIFE AND DETECTING THREATS IN REAL-TIME:

HOW IT WORKS

wpsWatch utilizes a number of different data sets, including wpsCameraTraps, tagged animals, vehicle monitoring, central watch stations, and fence sensors to create a holistic view of any given territory or park system.  With these inputs, we then transfer that information via connectivity networks such as long-range wifi or GSM networks through our software and into the hands that need it most.

WPS WATCH DASHBOARDS

After receiving these data sets, threat assessment software filters through thousands of wpsWatch images to look for animal-specific image patterns, human or otherwise.  When these patterns are detected, our system sends live alerts to wpsWatch desktop and mobile dashboards, allowing real time response to active threats.
