Robots and Whales: Tracking Whales with Quadrotors

2021-11-08T15:22:19+00:00

Observing whales is important for marine biology tasks such as taking census, determining family lineage, and general behavior observations. Currently, whales are observed manually using binoculars and cameras from the shore or from boats, and notes are made using pencil and paper. The process is ...
