Autonomous Drone Shark Shield: A Novel Shark Repelling System for Protecting Swimmers and Surfers

X. Li, H. Huang and A. V. Savkin


Aiming at protecting swimmers and surfers from shark attacks and preventing hurting sharks, we present a novel shark repelling system: Autonomous Drone Shark Shield, which uses flying drones to impede and prevent shark attacks. We introduce the design of the shark shield system and the strategy for expelling sharks. A shark interception algorithm was developed to steer drones to intercept moving sharks. The effectiveness of the proposed method is proved by computer simulation.
