Computational bioacoustics

Projects

Our work in this area focuses on hardware and software-based solutions to problems in ecology and entomology. Of particular interest is the development of computer-aided taxonomy tools for automated identification of species using bioacoustic signal processing, image processing and other techniques.

Current research is aimed at developing tools for biodiversity informatics, tools for rapid detection of quarantine taxa (insects and plant pathogens) and hand-held species identification systems. Other research projects include automated identification of urban soundscapes, objective soundscapes, acoustic identification of vehicles and the development of biotelemetry systems.
