While Jaws may be a work of fiction, the danger sharks pose in some areas of the world is very much real. Australian company Little Ripper Group has created the Little Ripper Lifesaver drone as a warning system to those in the path of a nearby shark. The drones are fitted with loudspeakers to project the warnings as loudly as possible. The private company has been working with Professor Michael Blumenstein, the Head of the School of Software in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and his team to develop an algorithm to automatically detect sharks using the video footage streamed from the drones.
