Low Cost IoT Based Livestock Tracking System for Zimbabwe

Lenard Simoyi | Calvin Mugauri


Abstract: This research is on establishing and developing a low cost IoT (Internet of Things) based Livestock tracking system. IoT technology is where non-intelligent objects sense and transmit data about the environment and be able to communicate the information to a receiver via the power of the internet and cloud computing. The model would be a non-evasive device that is fixed to a collar and fitted onto the neck of a cow. The collar should have a tracking device made up of GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) and GPS (Global Positioning System) Modules. It should have capabilities of sensing the live location of an animal and be able to give a farmer a near accurate live location of the sensed livestock. The model would have geofencing capabilities. This system should be able to assist the farmer in fighting cattle rustling as well as providing a PLF (Precision Livestock Farming) based approach to livestock management.
