Project 15

Project 15 from Microsoft is an effort that includes an open source software platform designed to accelerate conservation and ecosystem sustainability projects with the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The goal is to reduce costs and complexity and rapidly decrease time to deployment for organizations and scientific teams working on solutions to protect and preserve our natural world. Typical use cases include species tracking & observation, poaching prevention, habitat monitoring and pollution detection. 

The Project 15 Open Platform code is written to get teams most of the way to a deployable solution and speed up the integration to machine learning and AI. To help finish the job we provide extensive documentation and are also working to pair a community of developers, students and partners with conservation teams, all backed with the power of the Microsoft Cloud and Azure IoT.
