“Wildlife monitoring bots (wimobo) is a research project funded by the spanish national research council (csic) to support scientific research towards the achievement of the sustainable development goals (sdgs).

The goal of this project is to:

  • Advance in the development of robust and fast control algorithms for aerial and marine robots, emphasizing environmental monitoring tasks.
  • Generate technology and know-how for the development of autonomous vehicles with on-board sensing instruments.
  • Demonstrate experimentally, through a proof of concept, the advantages of using robots operating in different domains to improve the quality of environmental data collection, in particular, for data collection of greenhouse gasses (ghgs), and to conduct a population census of the pampas deer, in the argentinean national park campos del tuyú (ramsar site) where one of its last populations is endangered.
