Abstract

A small node of wireless sensor with low power consumption is helpful to study the animal behavior and walking. In addition, this system is also capable of tracking movement of animals to prevent loss by using checkpoint method. We propose a simple checkpoint method. In this methodology, we installed multiple base station nodes as wireless sensor fences in farm. Thus, when our animals such as cow come near by a base station, nodes will exchange information such as node id to the base station. Our experiment study shows that the design of the 13 developing nodes can work efficiently with our tracking methodology.
