Abstract: The Human Elephant conflict has become a topic of concern world-wide, including Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka, as a developing county, has a population of 20 million people plus a wild elephant population of approximately 4,500 to 5,000. With its increasing human population, the demand for jungle land for development has increased. This has led to a decrease in the wild elephant population rapidly. The decrease in habitats has resulted in the Human-Elephant conflict, which has led to deaths for both humans and elephants. This conflict has made serious damage to property, crops and harvest as well. There is no action taken yet in Sri Lanka to solve this burning problem. As Sri Lanka is moving forward in the 21st century with ICT, introducing a computer aided automated tracking and warning system would be an ideal solution to stop the human-elephant conflict. Analysing the behavioural patterns of wild elephants using GPS, this research aims to introduce a movement prediction and tracking system,. A successful tracking and a prediction will help alert the villagers and the responsible authorities to avoid a disaster coming in their way. To analyse the behavioural patterns of wild elephants it is proposed to use a pattern analysis algorithm, so that the next moving direction of an elephant will be predicted logically.
