Startup Provides NB-IoT Reindeer Ear Tag for Real-Time Location

From:chafanViews:138Date:2019-09-16

     Finnish technology startup Anicare is providing its Healtag tracker to be attached to the ears of reindeer so their movements can be tracked across Finland for as long as five years. The solution employs Nordic ID's Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled tag, which is built into an ear tag that can be attached to an animal's ear flap. The tag transmits its unique ID number, along with location data, via what is called narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), a low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) for cellular devices.


    The system employs a cellular connection to Anicare's cloud-based server in order to enable users to not only see where animals are but when they may require assistance, based on their lack of movement. Anicare also offers an app so that a herder can access data regardless of where he or she is located.
