The monitoring and prevention of collision risks of flying fauna, birds and bats, on wind turbines have become major issues for renewable energy producers.
In response, Biodiv-Wind SAS has developed the SafeWind® system.
SafeWind® applies Artificial Intelligence algorithms to wildlife video-detection in the challenging environment that the vicinity of operating wind turbines is. Detecting and tracking of moving targets is a key focus of the system, even when moving through rotating wind turbine blades.
Thanks to its enhance capabilities of detection, tracking and risk analysis, SafeWind®:
- It engages when necessary and according to configurable risk levels, scaring and/or regulating actions.
- Maximizes the output by triggering a regulation of the wind turbine once the risk is proven.
- Limits the phenomena of habituation of the fauna to sound scaring and neighbourhood inconvenience.
