Wearable Device

This wearable device generates an alarm that notifies the farmer of animals in distress, for example, when threatened by predators or during livestock theft.

A “ribbed” design had been used to ensure robustness as this unit is strapped around an animal’s neck and is prone to serious hammering and bumping against rocks, trees and whatever comes in the animal’s way. This rugged design is IP67 rated and 100% waterproof.

The Way

Injection moulding was selected for the design of this product. The main reason was a good production price per unit based upon production in high volumes. Various colours and material types are available to fit user requirements for this product. This is a high investment, but low unit cost route with good quality and reputable components.

The Who

Our customer is an electronics development house. This South African company has a long and in-depth understanding of market requirements and is a leading solutions provider in this field.

The Where

The end user will understand the value of preventative measures in order to reduce livestock loss. This is the foundation on which farmers base their decisions to implement this technology.

Our Journey

For farmers to know that their livestock is undisturbed and where they are supposed to be, offers valuable insight. Farming and livestock have become targets due to the remote and isolated farming environment. These threats include theft, as well as attacks from wild animals – to name only two. The Internet of Things (IoT) enables farmers to now monitor livestock assets on farms. This is done by securing a FarmRanger unit around the neck of a key animal in a herd, and data received from this animal is used to warn farmers of livestock movement that might indicate abnormal behavior. Signals are sent via different networks to inform farmers of the position and movement of, as well as possible threats against the livestock.
