Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting wild plant and animal species. Wildlife plays a vital role in balancing
the ecosystem and stabilizing different natural processes. In order to enable real-time tracking and monitoring of
animal movements, different tracking devices can be used. A collaboration work with a telecommunication industrial
partner in senior capstone design projects considers enhancing animal tracking devices. In this work, IoT-based
tracking device is designed to be powered from animal’s motion by using build-in harvesting unit. The device will be
used to monitor and track animal’s motions as well as biological signals such as temperature, pressure and heart rates
in order to observe and study animal species in their natural habitat.
