Cow Activity & GPS Tracker NB-IOT

Cow activity and geolocation tracker, specifically designed for livestock management, allowing the tracking of each animal, and the detection of abnormal behavior.


The NB-IOT Activity and Location tracker is specifically adapted for livestock. The case was designed to be attached to the cow’s collar. It has an autonomy of one to two years, depending on the configuration, thanks to a set of interchangeable batteries.

The activity of the animal is measured by time interval (for example every 15 minutes – configurable), thanks to an optimized algorithm based on the analysis of data from a 3D accelerometer. It identifies activities such as rumination, walking, running, and even jumping detection. Analysis of these data allows the identification of cows with abnormal behavior, a sign of illness or imminent birth.

The location of the cow, based on a GPS, is reported at regular intervals.

This robust, waterproof tracker is highly configurable, via a mobile application connected via Bluetooth.
