An Effective Solution for the Elephant Conflict

Approximately 250-280 elephants, out of a total population of approximately 6,000 die every year due to the human-elephant conflict. Over this time, and despite the increasing human population, and the fact that the available space for elephants has reduced due to loss of habitat to development, irrigation, and infrastructure settlement. Most human deaths from elephants occur at night when the victim gets in the way of an elephant, many of which could be avoided by responsible behavior by the victim. As a solution to this, we have developed a system that would track the elephant and warn the surrounding houses and victims prior to the attack if one is to happen. This system was developed due to the ineffectiveness of the electrical fences that have been put up to stop or end this human-elephant conflict.
