With many of our native wildlife becoming extinct at alarming rates, QUT researchers have developed a leading-edge technique for detecting koalas using drones that identify heat signatures from above. This method is faster and more accurate than traditional ground searches. Our researchers have created an algorithm to identify koalas’ heat signatures and are working to extend their algorithm to also detect other animal species.
Using drones and artificial intelligence, the team at QUT has developed a method that is up to 100% accurate in finding koalas at our primary bushland test site.
But we need to ramp up these efforts to reach more koala inhabited places in Australia. We need to do everything possible to save them.
