In this paper we present our approach to use a combination of radio frequency identification (RFID) and a wireless camera sensor network to identify and track animals at a zoo. We have developed and installed 25 cameras covering the whole zoo. The cameras are totally autonomous and they are configuring themselves in a wireless ad-hoc network. At strategic(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the performance of 2 methods of voice activity detection (neck-attached accelerometer vs. binaural recordings) in field studies in environments where voice activity normally occurs. METHOD A group of 11 healthy adults wore recording equipment during their lunch break. We used binary classification to analyze the results(More)
This paper proposes an intuitive wireless sensor/actuator based communication network for human animal interaction for a digital zoo. In order to enhance effective observation and control over wild life, we have built a wireless sensor network. 25 video transmitting nodes are installed for animal behavior observation and experimental vibrotactile collars(More)
This paper proposes a consumer-oriented design of Interaction System applied in a digital zoo. In order to introduce a new experience of visiting zoos, a series of interaction interfaces and applications is designed based on the web surfing. The applications can be located anywhere has Internet connection, used by visitors both in and out of the zoo. In the(More)
