English title
Exploitation of Machine Learning for Identification of Feeder Rod Movement

The aim of this diploma thesis is to create a device that uses machine learning methods to recognize the movements of a feeder fishing rod based on data from an inertial measurement unit. The introductory part is devoted to the feeder fishing technique, the selection of important movements and the possibilities of attaching the detection device to the rod. This is followed by the creation of a theoretical basis in the field of machine learning, familiarization with the inertial measurement unit and the issue of classification. The acquired knowledge is used to select appropriate techniques for solving the task of recognizing the movements of the rod. In the practical part, a detection device based on the ESP32 platform is designed and created. This is initially used as a motion sensor, which, in combination with the processing of the measured values, serves as a generator of a training data set. The work continues with the implementation of the convolutional neural network, the learning process on the created dataset and the integration of the most successful model into the detection device. The conclusion is devoted to testing in practice, evaluation and possibilities of future development. The result is a small, battery-powered device that, when attached to any feeder rod, provides highly successful detection of all key movements during the hunt. In addition, thanks to wireless communication via ESP-NOW, it is possible to send the results to various devices.
