'Bull' Tracking Collar for Bovidae

We have recently shipped the first batch of tracking collars for monitoring the location and behavior of bovidae: The Tracking Collar 'Bull'

With our new LoRaWAN-enabled GPS tracking collar it is possible to gain insight into the movement of bovidae such as cattle, sheep, horses and similarly-sized bovidae. The collar is easy to attach and has a very long battery life (1+ year using GPS). Thanks to the built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, movement behavior can be categorised and analysed. Due to the devices' data storage capability, migrating individuals, or populations in topologically challenging terrain can be tracked all year round without any data gaps.
