Since most National Parks have no basic 3G or 4G internet coverage, we always start by covering the conservation area with a state-of-the-art communication network. This network serves to collect data from the sensors we distribute across the park. The sensors securely track wildlife and gate sensors protect the area. The data is processed and presented in an easy-to-use web application. The application provides real-time information about the location of wildlife and assimilates many other critical elements of information, acquired from the sensors in the park. This process is called Situational Awareness, and plays a very important role in modern wildlife conservation.
The application provides real-time information about the location of the wildlife and other sensor information.
What is LoRa® Technology?
A LoRa® Network is a type of telecommunication network designed to allow long range communications at a low bit rate among things (connected objects), such as sensors operated on a battery. The special thing about LoRa® is that the signal is almost unable to be detected by poachers, it runs on solar energy and at the same time is able to provide coverage for all sensors in a large area.
Our sensor & actuators can be used for wildlife protection and park management. Most of the devices are match-box size and run on small batteries for many years. If possible we fit them with tiny solar cells, so they will never run out of power. If the application you have in mind is not listed below – don’t worry, we can adapt our devices towards your application.
