Researchers from the University of Bremen and Giessen and the company RoFlexs are working on the “mAInZaun” project. Behind it is a “modular, autonomous and intelligent pasture (protection) fence with detection and deterring predators”. The pasture fence should use artificial intelligence (AI) to detect wolves and drive them away using various automatically triggered signals such as ultrasound.
It is also planned that the fence will warn of unauthorized intruders and gaps in the fence system – everything for a better coexistence of people, livestock and wolves. For this purpose, a camera system with night vision and infrared is in progress, which is switched on by signals from a permanently active motion sensor. At the moment, efforts are being made to record only silhouettes for data protection reasons. Images and videos are evaluated directly on site and are not saved.
