Protecting Wildlife with OpenCollar Devices Running Zephyr RTOS

By August 1, 2023No Comments

The Zephyr Developer Summit, hosted under the first-ever Embedded Open Source Summit in Prague, Czech Republic, on June 27-30 included presentations, BoFs, and training designed for real time problem solving and deep discussions. More than 1,300 people registered for the EOSS conference – representing 375 organizations across 56 countries around the globe. Zephyr had 75+ technical sessions (in-person and on-demand) for 3 tracks focused on users of Zephyr, developers contributing upstream, and maintainer-specific topics.

All of the videos from the Zephyr Developer Summit can be found on the Zephyr Youtube Channel. Each week, we’ll highlight a few videos in a blog for easy access. Today, we’re featuring a keynote presentation “Protecting Wildlife with OpenCollar Devices Running Zephyr RTOS by Luka Mustafa, Founder & CEO, IRNAS Institute for Development of Advanced Applied Systems.

Wildlife is under constant threat. Rhinos are being poached for their horns, elephants suffer in human-wildlife conflicts and many other wonderful species are on the brink of extinction. Our expertise is technology and we have been working with Smart Parks for the past 4 years to create a set of OpenCollar animal trackers and other sensors which are open by design. Together, we will explore how the Zephyr RTOS we are all using is being an integral part of devices we develop, and dive into a number of deployments. Watch the video below:
