Lightweight low-cost wildlife tracking tags using integrated transceivers

Toledo, S., Kishon, O., Orchan, Y., Bartan, Y., Sapir, N., Vortman, Y., Nathan R. (In press). Lightweight low-cost wildlife tracking tags using integrated transceivers. Proceedings of the 6th EDERC Conference (European Embedded Design in Education & Research), Milan Italy.

ABSTRACT

We describe the design, manufacture, and deployment of advanced wildlife tracking tags (transmitters) based on integrated transceivers. The tags weigh as little as 2g and cost less than $20 each in relatively small quantities (tens).

About us

We are a group of scientists devoted to the study of animal flight, including animal movement ecology, behavior, physiology and biomechanics. We study wild animals in the field and in the lab using a diversity of research approaches. We welcome applications for M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies and post-doctoral work in our group at the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology at the University of Haifa.
