MIMOS IoT-Based Smart Forest Monitoring and Surveillance System


This system aims to enhance anti-poaching efforts at protected areas through the use of real-time camera surveillance with analytics capabilities.

The objective of the system is to prevent unauthorised access and to alert authorities of trespassing and suspicious behaviour that contravenes the National Forestry Act and the Wildlife Conservation Act. 

The system can be separated into two parts: physical infrastructure and software applications. Infrastructure is solar-powered hardware that consist of camera with video analytics capabilities as well as network equipment, and software is an application that enable monitoring by authorities and relevant stakeholders is to be installed in end users’ smart devices..
