E4E Summer 2021 Research Forum

August 27, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Summer Research Presentations

Friday August 27, 2021, 9:30 – 10:30am Pacific Time



Join us to hear about our Engineers for Exploration (E4E) research projects. This summer, E4E researchers made impressive contributions to develop technologies that help understand critical ecosystems and monitor endangered species. 

  • Acoustic Species Identification: Leverage machine learning and digital signal processing to automatically analyze over fifteen-thousand hours of audio data collected from low-cost passive-acoustic-monitoring systems from the Peruvian Amazon.
  • Aye-Aye Sleep Monitoring: Determine the variations in Aye-Aye sleep patterns by developing a sensor suite for the Aye-Aye’s at the SD Zoo. Develop data analysis to determine behaviors. 
  • Baboons on the Move: Tracking the behavior of a large troop of baboons in Kenya using drones and computer vision.  
  • Burrowing Owl: Applying machine learning to automate the labeling of camera trap footage of burrowing owls in Southern California in order to preserve their population. 
  • FishSense: Create underwater depth mapping hardware and software to monitor fish size and population via noninvasive sampling.
  • Mangrove Monitoring: Utilize drones and machine learning to aid scientific collaborators and policymakers in mangrove conservation.
  • Maya Archaeology: Build realistic 3D models of Maya archaeological sites in Guatemala using LiDAR, depth, and other 3D vision sensors.
  • Radio Telemetry Tracker: Create an autonomous aerial platform for locating endangered species equipped with radio transmitting devices. 
  • Smartfin: Turn recreational surfers into research quality ocean buoys.

Each project presentation consists of a short video that overviews these projects and highlights the work from the summer. The researchers will be available after each video to answer questions. 

About the program: Engineers for Exploration ( is a one of a kind program promoting multidisciplinary and collaborative research projects with the broad goals of protecting the environment, uncovering mysteries related to cultural heritage, and providing experiential learning experiences for participants. We team student engineers with scientists from a wide range of disciplines to create innovative technologies that are deployed around the world.
