Reindeer Protection Using Sensors

Mainly in Western countries, animals are free to roam around the forest where it’s easier for the herders to feed them.

To rescue female reindeers when hurt, sensors are tied around their neck. Whenever they get into any kind of trouble herder gets the notification in their smartphone. These sensors help herders to rescue those animals quickly and even identify the cause of death for those killed.

Teams behind those sensor invention is working on inventing system to track down the predators.

It has been identified that almost 10% of reindeers are died cause of accidents or by falling prey to beers, wolverines and wolves.

One of the worse predators, lynx is also can be tracked down before it attempts to attack reindeer in 2018.

The herders discovered that it was best to put the trackers on alpha females to enable them to best locate the whole herd.

GPS satellite signals will be used to track the location of reindeers, which is communicated to herders’ smartphones via a low power, specially designed network which eliminates the need for each device to have a mobile subscription.

“We have high expectations of the internet of things, that today’s sensors are still quite large. We need a sensor that lasts for a year, at a low cost, and with improved location technology – it can be hard to get good GPS signals in the high Arctic. We’re working now on finding the best technology mix and getting the best sensor.”, said Matti Sarkela, head of the Finnish Reindeer Herders’ Association.

She also said, “This tracking solution brings real benefits for the reindeer and for our herders. There are the obvious ones, like rescuing animals that are hurt or confirming the death of an animal to claim compensation, but by tracking all the time, we can gain insight into their behaviors and better care for them.”

All of them are really looking forward to this new invention in coming year, 2018.
