Camera traps are used to capture wildlife images. An infra red sensor is used to detect motion which then causes the inbuilt camera to take a photo.
Motion detection has the disadvantage that many of the photos taken (on average more than 50%) do not contain an animal.
Images stored on the camera traps SD card, can now automatically be classified and sorted into species folders by machine vision software developed by Vigilance Technologies.
The video to the left demonstrates the results of removing false triggers from raw camera trap data.
