Need software on the International Space Station (ISS)? Open Source! What about saving endangered animals from extinction?...Open Source!



"For the past two months
IRNAS and Smart Parks, in partnership with Hackster.io have been working on building the next-generation OpenCollar ElephantEdge tracker, closely looking at requirements and features that make this a success. Two key concepts are driving it, rock solid performance field performance and an intuitive user experience. In the previous blog and webinar we did a deep-dive into the technical choices made in the design process and the experiences shared by Smart Parks, we hereby look deeper into the firmware and workflow aspects." - Hackster.io

"Park Rangers in Liwonde National Park in Malawi are for the first time able to see elephant locations every fifteen minutes. This is possible due to new Smart Parks technology providing Rangers with GPS-locations four times an hour. With this information, elephants can be better protected." - SmartParks.org
