  1. Program for Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop software that can process infrared video streams to automatically detect gray whale blows. Additionally, the software will count the number of blows and estimate the speed and the number of whales that are present. We will make use of a novel technique for whale blow detection that Toyon has demonstrated on infrared video of humpback whales. The approach makes use of b ...

  2. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...
