Mohn Technology is developing an autonomous Fish Research System (FRS) Camera that can be placed underwater in rivers and fjords across Norway.
The system has low power consumption and uses a combination of efficient and complex machine vision algorithms to reduce workload on the users. The hardware is robust and compact, ready to handle hostile environments with long service intervals.
The FRS uses edge computing to sort the picture stream locally in order to save data costs and bandwidth. The system then sends the relevant images to a central server, which processes the data with artificial intelligence and makes it easily available for the user. The results is an intuitive combination of pictures and statistics, which lets the user get an overview over the situation quickly and also allows for more in-depth research into size distribution, species identification, trends and patterns.
- Industrial HD machine vision camera
- Stereo camera for size estimation
- Custom lights, with wavelengths both visible and invisible to fish.
- Local computer with AI-specific accelerator.
- Industrial grade router with both ethernet, WiFi and 4G capabilities.
Our FRS camera system is tested by NORCE, who also can deliver consulting services connected to the FRS camera.
Contact us if you have special requirements, like autonomous power sources, custom mounting etc.
The system is currently undergoing pilot testing in both sea- and freshwater.
The example footage is taken with the previous version of camera internals. Current series have a higher image quality.
