Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

This project involved the automatic identification and extraction of whirligig beetle locations from video frames using a variety of computer vision and machine learning methods, and tracking the beetle locations over time. Preliminary work was also done on agent-based computer simulation that aims to replicate the beetles' swarming motions.
