shark drone

Today we move to the sunny shores of Australia to see the latest work carried out by the company Little Ripper Lifesaver, which has just presented a new drone, ready to start reaching all people interested in a unit, which stands out for being able to spot sharks on the shores of any city with a 90% efficiency.

Personally, I have to admit that this company has achieved such a high level of efficiency, especially if we take into account that this was not the objective with which it was created. According to his own words Kevin Weldon, founder of Little Ripper Lifesaver, his business was created with the idea of ​​helping all the people who had been the victims of an unpleasant event with the technology present in their drones, an idea that helped him get the support of a large multinational such as is Westpac Banking Corporation.

Little Ripper Lifesaver presents its new drones developed to be able to detect the presence of sharks from above

Returning to this peculiar drone, tell you that the software is not only capable of detecting sharks in real time on the images of the water that it is capturing from a certain area, but that the software that it incorporates is capable of differentiating between sharks, people, whales, dolphins and even seals. As a detail, tell you that the efficiency in this work of the human being, usually, it is 18%.

As you can see in the video, the operation of the system is as simple and intuitive as the fact that the controller only has to operate the drone and it will show a series of green or red boxes on the images depending on the type of object analyzed. Green for all animals or humans except the Sharks that will appear marked with a red box.
