At Institute IRNAS we specialize in rapid development of well-tailored cost-effective future-proof hardware products and IoT systems. As a part of our expertise we collaborate with conservation specialists to to evaluate the current state of technology and develop better, cost-effective technologies to improve wildlife protection and envision better methods for observing, monitoring and measuring the nature. Our interdisciplinary engineering team designs the solution, prepares the prototypes and assists in field-testing even in most challenging environments. Optimized and tested solutions are then manufactured and made available to the conservation community.
We work for and together with our clients from Conservation field: the Arribada, Initiative, Zoological Society of London, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig, Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), Institute of Zoology, Penguin Watch. Together we strive to create technology-enabled solutions for the identified conservation challenges.
Some of our projects:
* Arribada PS-C water-proof IoT turtle cameras and tags, used to track the movement and capture video on nesting green sea turtles with embedded communication via LoraWAN when on surface.
* AAMP Arribada Arboreal Monitoring Platform , camera based monitoring platform with WiFi connactivity and solar power for remote area deployment that was deployed in Manu, Peru in tropical rainforest.
* APMP Arribada Penguin Monitoring Platform - rugged solar-powered camera unit for deployment on Antarctica, providing year-round periodic snapshots of the surrounding area, monitoring annual penguin migration and nesting and exposing global warming effects and changes to the environment.
* AFMP Arribada Fresh Monitoring Platform - solar-powered standalone water level monitoring and camera device for remote areas with satellite and LoraWAN connectivity.
