AWS Powers Qld New Croc-Spotting Drones

Drone-maker Little Ripper has partnered with Amazon.com to create a service to help protect tourists from crocodiles in holiday destinations.

The Queensland Government initiated the project after the privately owned Ripper Group successfully used drones to identify sharks in New South Wales.

The Ripper Group has partnered with Amazon Web Services to develop capability of the new drone service, including reducing delays in transmitting footage. The drones use an algorithm created with the University of Technology in Sydney that developers say can identify 16 different types of marine life and has an accuracy rate of 93 percent.
