IdentiFlight’s system saves eagles IdentiFlight A new automated camera system that stops wind turbines from spinning when it spots eagles nearby has shown significant results in reducing the birds’ fatalities. Developed by IdentiFlight , the system uses AI and machine learning to keep improving to save more eagles and endangered bird species’ lives from wind farm-related deaths. Given how rapidly renewable energy is expanding around the globe, wind turbines have increasingly been popping up across our planet. Despite being one of the best options for renewable energy, wind farms have also proven to kill birds with their turning blades . How the IdentiFlight system works Simply put, IdentiFlight’s new camera system detects the presence of birds, figures out if they’re endangered, and stops wind turbines from spinning before the birds can hit them. In reality, though, it’s a much more technical and advanced system. IdentiFlight’s sytem blends AI and high-precision optical technology to detect eagles and other protected bird species. The images are processed, determine velocity, trajectory, and position within seconds of detection. These optical towers operate autonomously, detailing, classifying, and curtailing potentially harmful wind turbines. They can pick out a bird up to 0.6 miles (one km) away. […]
