Artificial Intelligence for MiSHELL Drones

Wildlife protection and counter poaching are the principal missions of the drones developed by Kashmir Robotics. Our drones are launched with awareness of self and mission objectives. On board sensors, signal processing, and deep neural learning enable our drones to develop better representations from large-scale unlabeled data acquired during the mission and all prior mission by all Kashmir Robotics drones. They learn, evolve, and become masters of mission solutions. 

Surveillance of marine turtle nesting and hatching is most often done by people walking the beach at dawn, observing sea turtle tracks in the sand, and following them to nests created during the night. Effectiveness of this method depends on the number of beach walkers, and level of expertise, and degree of focus. For some nesting beaches this may be adequate, but for beaches subjected to heavy predation, recreational activity, remoteness, or poaching, significant benefits may be achieved through more timely surveillance. For most nesting beaches,beach walking surveillance will prove difficult to achieve or sustain. 

Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS), also referred to as drones, offer the potential for better timeliness, consistency, overall effectiveness, and more widespread application. Drones may be able to perform surveillance of marine turtle nesting throughout day and night under most weather conditions. Several groups have already demonstrated some capability using simple drones streaming video to ground operators. 

Kashmir World Foundation (KwF) is a world leader in the application of embedded systems -- microprocessors distributed throughout the drone -- to achieve a very high degree of autonomy.
