Research areas - livestock research

Start using TrackLab, easily collect spatial data and behavioral statistics, and learn more about wayfinding and space utilization of your livestock. 

TrackLab is used for livestock research in various segments such as academic, veterinary, livestock breeding, and more. 

It is a tag-based system, which means that animals wear tags (collar-based, ear-tags, backpack, etc.) to collect data on their location and movement.

Indoor and outdoor solutions

The types of tags used in a TrackLab solution depend on the environment. For indoor environments, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) tags are used. For larger outdoor environment the system is typically based on GPS tags.
