Tracking Animals Cheaply
The greatest barrier to successful research with wildlife tags is excessive prices, which limit access to technology and innovative research. As a result, drone researchers have primarily resorted to focus on military and commercial applications. While there are many tracking methods, all have major flaws. Our project creates a technology that will lead a revolution in the field of animal information and monitoring.
Our product is a drone-to-QR code detection system. Each QR tag will cost only $0.50, and will be detected by drones from a reasonable distance. Each tagged animal will have a profile strored on a global database that will be continuously updated , allowing for a more informative and convenient method of sharing and storing data.
