This Livestock Monitoring Arduino board is a system module that uses ADI power solution on the controller and transceiver module used for virtual fencing solution for livestock, where the animals are controlled by GPS-collars and an app. The system is consist of a power harvester (MAX20361), BMS (MAX20335) and a temperature sensor (MAX30210) and a buzzer with an option for vibration motor.
The Arduino board is small in size with dimensions approximately 2.1 inch in width by 3.2 inches in length. The following are the instructions in using the board.
When using the board, the power supply may come from different sources and these are listed below:
The Arduino interface is a standardized digital interfaces for various digital communication protocols such as SPI, I2C, and UART. These interface types were standardized by Arduino, which is hardware and software company. Complete details on the PMOD specification can be found here.
When using the arduino board, a general purpose mobile device vabration motor can be used. An example of a probe that can be used is a product from Vybronics Inc. and its datasheet can be found in here and the connections and its typical application can be seen on the diagram as shown below.
