Intelligent Collar Programming
|GPS data is used not only for locomotion and migration, respectively the calculation of homeranges, but also to study behaviour. It is always a challenge to define the right GPS schedule for a study as two factors (study duration plan vs. detail depth) contradict each other.
Most GPS schedules are set on regular intervals which create potential problems.
We are of course aware of that dilemma and do our best to approach it.
How it works
Our GPS Plus and Vertex Plus collars can be programmed to automatically adapt their scheduling to the situation experienced. We defined certain trigger elements and you are able to program a specific GPS schedule for everyone of them. The collar automatically switches the scheduling depending on which trigger is present or absent. They are strictly hierarchic organised and enable you zoom into the pattern whenever needed and conserve power whenever possible.
The specific GPS schedules can be complex and include rules for certain times and dates. The schedules can, if the collar includes a communication option, be changed remotely as well. You don’t have to use all triggers but can focus on some only. Some triggers can also initiate an alert message informing you about the event.
Wolfs can carry only a small battery cell limiting the collar life to a year or two only. They have however a clear behaviour pattern perfectly suited to be optimized by our Interactive Collar Programming. Here a very simple example refering to the GPS schedules only, whereas many trigger events can also trigger notification messages and further changes in collar settings.
