  • Download CSV data
  • Realtime system health
  • Graphic visualization
  • Heat map tracking
  • Zone time budgets

Detailed Specifications

The Hardware

  • Sensors collect real time position and accelerometer data to track cow movement, behaviour and social interactions
  • Ruggedized sensor hardware and has a 1 year battery life (at 1 Hz) so you can install-and-forget for the duration of the study
  • 24/7 automatic transmission of data from sensors via Bluetooth to the web platform for immediate analysis
  • Long-range receivers suitable for indoor or outdoor use
  • Customisable sensor sampling rate up to 100Hz

The Software

Use our online platform to access raw data as well as data processed into downloadable reports as well as maps and graphs. Our system offers easy on-site data backup as well as remote access. .

Activity  Position Time Budgets
     
Graphing abilities enable comparison of activity levels between over time and between individuals Heat maps show position over time of tracked animals, mapped onto their enclosure Zone time budget graphs show animal preference for user-specified spatial zones.
