Using Sigfox’s very low-speed network, the Sigfox Foundation has designed and implemented a remote tracking solution for rhinos that uses GPS sensors fitted in the horn of each animal to send positioning data to a secure on-line platform via Eutelsat satellite resources. Three times a day, wardens, vets and specialists in game parks can access readouts of the movements of the animals. This precise data allows them to improve protection against poaching and understanding of an endangered species. With the help of Eutelsat’s satellite resources the Sigfox Foundation aims to fit 3,000 rhinos over a three-year period to track movements.
Prior to officialising the partnership, Eutelsat and Sigfox Foundation have collaborated since November 2016 on an initial operation in southern Africa connecting approximately ten animals. Three base stations of Sigfox’s low-speed IoT network have been connected to the secure platform using Eutelsat’s smartLNB satellite service that extends terrestrial IoT networks anywhere. The collaboration improved the identification of areas of surveillance and refined allocation of resources for protection on the ground.
