A new generation of alarm systems for animal traps

The main goal was to develop a new Generation Trap Sensor that notifies a hunter via email and short text messages whenever the trap shuts. Trap Sensor units are waterproof and battery driven. The sensor detects displacement of an external magnet and tilt events and reports them to a server using an integrated GSM modem.

Projects know-how and IP:

  • Reliable and power optimized GSM communication;
  • Ultra-low power MEMS signal processing;
  • Hardware design extremely harsh environments.

Brightgrove was involved into various stage of the product development, including principal device scheme creation, hardware implementation and firmware development.
