In a rapidly evolving world where new technology emerges every day, it is a constant challenge to integrate with rapidly developing systems. Following many years of successful operations Smart Parks has decided to focus in key areas where we can provide the greatest level of knowledge and experience.
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 EarthRanger Application
The EarthRanger application provides real-time information about the location of the wildlife and other sensor information. The application can assist in activities such as tracking wildlife, monitoring fences, creating reports and installing alerts. This software solution can provide protected area managers, ecologists, and wildlife biologists with more Situational Awareness, which assists them in making more informed operational decisions for wildlife conservation.
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.
