Acoustic scheme to count bird songs with wireless sensor networks

Abstract : A key issue for any project that aims to study endangered animals is the counting process. In this work, we propose an algorithm for automatic counting of singing birds in their habitat by using wireless sensors fitted with microphone. Sensors are used to record audio samples of bird songs and samples are analyzed to extract fingerprints that permit to recognize bird species. This paper details the counting algorithm that uses graph theory and audio inputs comparison. Finally, we demonstrate our scheme efficiency through experimentations.
