Research areas

TrackLab is used for livestock research in various segments such as academic, veterinary, livestock breeding, and more. It is a tag-based system, which means that animals wear tags (collar-based, ear-tags, backpack, etc.) to collect data on their location and movement.

Indoor and outdoor solutions

The types of tags used in a TrackLab solution depend on the environment. For indoor environments, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) tags are used. For outdoor environment the system is typically based on GPS tags.

 


Animal tracking system

The TrackLab animal tracking system allows you to control recording sessions manually or with a calendar-based scheduling tool. After data collection, you can replay data and use maps, profiles, and heatmaps to visualize your results.
