Monitoring marine life with integrated technologies
To capitalize on this revolution in data and technology, we will need breakthroughs on several fronts. A first imperative is to end the balkanization of data to create a new era of open and automated data access – so that the data now locked in the servers of government agencies, businesses or researchers are much more broadly available – and to enable the flowering of an ocean Internet of Things (IoT).
Seiche develops technology that specially helps with marine conservation, including acoustic systems for monitoring marine mammals like dolphins and whales along with specialist cameras, software and modeling techniques. This technology is used by the likes of Shell, BP and Exxon Mobil to measure and mitigate the effects of activities such as seismic surveys on marine life.
