Contributions through IT

Biodiversity monitoring solution

Aquaculture Management Portal

Supports optimal aquaculture methods including planned production of the species bred and reduction in production cost through daily recording and reporting on feeding, optimization of analytical work and regular monitoring of water quality and species bred.

Application of headcount estimation to animal counts based on crowd patch learning

NEC’s unique headcount estimation tool learns from composite crowd image patches using a convolutional neural network to estimate headcount. Application of this tool enables estimation of the number and density of animals with a broad scope of activity.

Solution for visually representing forest value

Forest resources are estimated by analyzing aerial photos of forests in a large area to estimate tree heights and by superimposing the photos on maps provided by the GIS (Geographical Information System).

Monitoring to preserve forests by using light analysis technology

The condition of vegetation in a large area can be monitored efficiently by observing optical spectra to extract physical quantities containing a large amount of information, making it possible to determine the type and condition of plants and resources.

Radar system for illegal logging surveillance

Regardless of weather or the time of day or night, observation of wide-ranging forests is possible due to satellite-mounted “synthetic aperture radar”. This system assists in cracking down on illegal logging.

Marine environment monitoring system

Utilizing underwater sensors that are unaffected by weather, high density marine information can be provided 24 hours a day in real time for extended periods of time and covering broad areas.

Solution to help us live in harmony with ecosystems

“Insect Identification Support Service” using image recognition technology

Images of insects taken with smartphones and other devices are referenced against a database that contains images of many different types of insects to determine whether an insect is harmful or not. This helps to control pest insects on farms and other places of agricultural production in a timely and appropriate manner.

Solution to prevent bird strikes

Bird strike incidents can be prevented by constantly monitoring the existence of birds and other phenomena in and around airports to reduce the danger of airplanes colliding with birds during takeoff and landing.

Surveillance and control of wildlife invasion utilizing fence sensors

Sensors placed at regular intervals along a fence detect the approach or invasion of wildlife and create an artificial breaking of wire state that sends out a warning.
