Design and Simulation of Elephant Intrusion Detection System
Abstract— Due to the increase in the population, human settlement is extending to forest border areas,
causing conflicts between elephants and humans, leading to loss of life and property. Hence, large scale
monitoring is required for real-time detection and warning of elephant intrusion into human settlements.
Existing solutions using seismic waves, image processing, etc. are costly solutions for large scale
monitoring. The project aims at developing an affordable solution for large-scale monitoring and early
warning of elephant intrusion. In this work, architecture for elephant intrusion detection using wireless sensor
networks is proposed and also a low cost sensor system has been designed and developed after selecting the
appropriate sensors for monitoring. After analysing the existing signal processing methods, the most suitable
technique for real-time detection of elephants is chosen and simulated. A two level detection system using
microphones and IR sensors is used for monitoring the scenario and sound data is sent using FM transceivers
to a PC.
Index Terms— human-elephant conflicts, intrusion, IR sensors, FM transceivers, microphone.
