The five-year XPRIZE Rainforest Competition is a call-to-action initiative to help save rainforests through the development of technologies to survey biodiversity in real-time leading to insights on rainforests and ensuring creation of solutions through various teams. The competing teams will leverage technologies such as robotics, drone (SWARM and TETHERED), nano drones with sensors, drones designed for sample collection, remote sensing, data analysis, artificial intelligence, DNA sample collection, Genome sequencing, and machine learning to develop new rainforest biodiversity survey tools.

Grene Robotics has built a Forest Conservation Dome which is a fully autonomous solution that provides multi-spectral near real-time surveillance of the forest. The solution can help fight threats like unauthorized deforestation, wild forest fires, human encroachment, trespassing, smuggling, wildlife poaching, mitigate man-animal conflict, and track animal migration.

Grene Robotics executive director Ahmed Chamanwala said“At Grene Robotics, we have put in over a decade of R&D to develop autonomous solutions for forest conservation. Our experience with XPRIZE Rainforest Competition will help us refine our capabilities allowing us to build scalable and affordable technology to autonomously survey and monitor biodiversity in near real-time.”

The company entered the competition in association with Fringe Ford(rainforest landscape), Field Projects International(research group), and TRAK-TFRC(biodiversity/ conservation equipment). It has started deploying the technology on the ground across Fringe Ford’s landscape collecting data in near real-time.
