3rd April 2019 – Methods in Ecology and Evolution article out on animal behaviour recognition using accelerometers
Using data collected on ten wild Kalahari meerkats, LMAM, in collaboration with the University of Zurich, developed a new method that combines biomechanics and machine learning to recognise commonly observed animal behaviours such as foraging, running, and resting. The study was published in Methods in Ecology and Evolution, and is receiving quite some attention from national and international press: EPFL News, British Ecological Society, Austria Press Agency (APA), ScienceDaily, SwissInfo, myScience, EurekAlert!, Phys.org, Le Matin, Le Soir, 24 Heures, 20 Minutes, Tribune de Genève.
