Classification of Underwater Mammals
Innovative Engineering Lab
Mammal Identifier System
Initial design for an underwater mammal identification device using machine learning and signal processing. Created with a goal of implementing audio signals of dolphin and whale voices to alert motorized boats of mammal presence in underwater locations. Utilization of filters to minimize noise from external factors to increase to accuracy of the identification of specific mammals.
Mammal Species Collection
Our selection also was focused on implementing a solution to decrease the number of propeller collisions with mammals. In order to develop an algorithm to apply to this issue, we selected a few endangered species such as the Northern Whale and Atlantic Dolphin categories.
Atlantic Spotted Dolphin
Northern Right Whale
False Killer Whale
White Sided Dolphin
White Beaked Dolphin
Below are audio samples for each of the chosen mammal species.
Research of Classification for Underwater Mammals involves constant analysis of the hypotheses we explore. Since 2022, we have been driven by this mission of discovery. Read on to find out more about our latest work.
Project's Preliminary Research
This section provides a background on initial progress for the Mammal Identifier System. Here is an explanation of challenges that have been faced and our possibilities for overcoming these hurdles.
