since 2016 i'm running a LoRa based Cow-Tracker in the Bavarian Alps using the TTN an the 50X SODAQ ONE
Bichler Alm is on 1337m OSL at :
Me, myself, have only 30 cows on 0,8 km²
But I cover about 10.000 Cows with my existing Internet network in the BY-Alps by now.
I just want to show you what I'm doing there:
The housings for the Sodaq One are made on a 3D printer that I took with me to the hut.
My Gateway is solar driven and has an 5GHz uplink to to the internet 12km away.
This is a foto in winter. I disconnected the batteries.
The backend is TTN and as frontedd I used a raspberry pi running traccar.
Here you can see the trace of one cow within two days.
First i had a lot of trouble with broken housings and humidity.
Redesigning and painting the Sodaq One with electronics paint solved the Problems.
