SiConsult already developed trackers for different activities: Beekeeping, railway equipment, etc… Now we consider transferring our technology to cattle management and in first approach activity cow tracking. We began need analysis and we obtained a first conclusion, the worst case for the producer is when the cow is lost (cow scared that run anywhere, valley swap, theft…) So before to imagine behaviour analysis, cattle producers would like to know cows locations from anywhere. We have experience on it, but we know that all terrestrial communications (cellular, Sigfox, LoRa…) have uncovered area, especially in mountain landscape. DIVA project Cow Track plan to design prototype using satellite communication with main features below: – small form factor to be compatible with an usage “placed on cow”, – Affordable price (product and service less expensive than 2 times the equivalent cellular version) – low power: 1 year live time minimum
