Drone videos featuring sharks swimming dangerously close to beachgoers have become fairly common over the last few years.

These videos are enthralling—not to mention disturbing—but new research is taking the potential of drone technology for capturing sharks beyond the realm of entertainment, using it as a tool to spot great whites and other dangerous sharks to help keep people safe.

A project called SharkEye is one of the leaders in this effort, but a research initiative out of Australia may actually be at the head of the pack.


Read our recent article on how drones are being used to keep the waters safe to learn more about both efforts.
