MECOnet is announcing the launch of a new project ARCA!

ARtificial intelligence platform to prevent Climate change natural hazArds (ARCA)

The main goal of this project is the development of a system based on transnationally innovative services, designed through pilots, i.e. wooded areas, and joint actions contributing to face the risk of natural hazards induced by climate change, such as windstorms, wildfires and droughts.

In particular, the project objective directly contributes to the development of a joint plan to maintain and expand biodiversity in rural ecosystems, and it directly addresses the development of environmental protection measures for the preservation of natural resources and protected areas (e.g., National Parks, Natura 2000 sites, etc.) according to the EU Biodiversity Strategy to “halt biodiversity loss by 2020”.

Innovative algorithms based on Machine Learning (ML) and heterogeneous networks based on IoT sensors will be exploited to model specific forests and mitigate the natural hazards impacts. The proposed digital platform will be composed of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), video cameras, drones and LiDAR remote sensing, aiming to model the forest.
