Bottom Line: It is made up of primary and secondary nodes.Primary nodes are battery-powered and gather secondary-node transmitted information to provide it, along with position and time data, to a final base station in charge of the animal monitoring.The system allows tracking based on contextual information obtained from statistical data.

ABSTRACT
The improvement in the transmission range in wireless applications without the use of batteries remains a significant challenge in identification applications. In this paper, we describe a heterogeneous wireless identification network mostly powered by kinetic energy, which allows the localization of animals in open environments. The system relies on radio communications and a global positioning system. It is made up of primary and secondary nodes. Secondary nodes are kinetic-powered and take advantage of animal movements to activate the node and transmit a specific identifier, reducing the number of batteries of the system. Primary nodes are battery-powered and gather secondary-node transmitted information to provide it, along with position and time data, to a final base station in charge of the animal monitoring. The system allows tracking based on contextual information obtained from statistical data.

f8-sensors-09-03942: Average number of frames received and erroneous messages in a Primary-Secondary radio link experiment for all the distances.

Mentions: Figure 8 shows the error rate average of the communication system. We observe that for short distances (less than 20 meters) all the frames transmitted arrive correctly at the primary node. When the emitter moves away from the receiver, some frames are not received and get lost. Only 30% of the frames arrive at the receiver at 100 m and no frame is received at larger distances. Moreover, we observe after 30 m some of the frames received are not correctly decoded, with a maximum error of 40% when the nodes are at their maximum transmission range.
