Project supervisor Ashish Rajput stated that the AI system’s cameras, similar to these utilized by the Indian Army alongside the nation’s borders, are programmed to even detect people close to railway strains.

When elephants are detected inside 100ft of the railway monitor, alerts are despatched to forest and railway officers, who coordinate to decelerate trains and information the elephants away to forestall collisions. Four personnel repeatedly monitor the system within the management room close to the railway monitor.

The venture, launched in February, has been executed at a value of 72.4m rupees ($867,758; £683,976), says Supriya Sahu, secretary of the Tamil Nadu Forest Department.

Previously, forest personnel carried out common patrols alongside railway tracks to watch elephant exercise. Ms Sahu stated this methodology had limitations, and guaranteeing full elephant security from accidents posed “significant challenges”.
