  4. 4. Mobility Analysis of Zoo Visitors

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Reglerteknik

    Författare :Kim Byström; [2019]
    Nyckelord :probe request; MAC address; Markov model; continuous distribution model; Monte Carlo simulation;

    Sammanfattning : In a collaboration between Kolmården Zoo and Linköping University, supported by the Norrköping municipality’s fund for research and innovation, mobility measurements have been performed inside the zoo. These measurements have been done by six WiFi sniffers collecting anonymised MAC addresses from the visitors smartphones. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Effect of sensory enrichments on the behaviour of captive Northern lynx (Lynx lynx lynx) and assessment of automated behaviour monitoring technologies

    Master-uppsats, Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Författare :Uranie JEAN-LOUIS; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Automatic monitoring; Environmental enrichment; Northern Lynx; Pacing; Odour; Sound;

    Sammanfattning : Captive environments like zoo exhibits offer limited space, lacking many of the environmental stimuli that are present in the wild. This may reduce animal welfare and potentially lead to the development of stereotypic behaviour like pacing. Environmental enrichment is used to prevent and reduce pacing and enhance animal well-being. LÄS MER
