IdentiFlight has been accepted by the Grand-East Region authorities in France as effective in reducing the mortality rates of the red kite in French wind farms.
The IdentiFlight system blends artificial intelligence with high-precision cameras to detect specific bird species and helps minimise collision threats with rotating wind turbine blades. IdentiFlight units can detect and identify multiple protected bird species, including the red kite. IdentiFlight’s partnership with Boralex and Ecosphère was beneficial during the validation process for the system. The multi-year study highlighted the residual impact on bird populations near wind farms.
