The cameras take pictures of wildlife based on infrared and motion sensors while the AudioMoths record sounds in the surrounding environment. The intended purposes for the purchase of the equipment relate to detecting wildlife such as mammals, birds, and frogs as well as the ambient environment, but the equipment could be used for other purposes related to remote detection through images and sound.
