In a groundbreaking initiative, the Brazilian Amazon is receiving a high-tech boost in the form of “curupiras” – small AI-equipped devices attached to trees. These innovative boxes are designed to detect the sounds of chainsaws and tractors, enabling real-time identification of potential deforestation threats. Unlike traditional satellite monitoring, this system is proactive, instantly alerting authorities to forest disturbances. With a successful pilot phase near Manaus, the project aims to expand its network of sensors and potentially detect forest fires. This promising technology is a ray of hope in the battle against Amazon deforestation.
