Our idea for an alert system combines low-cost thermal sensors, machine learning and wireless transmission to build an affordable system that alerts communities to the presence of elephants, providing a chance to safely act before a human-elephant conflict (HEC)...
Why isn't there an Arduino style platform for biologging and satellite telemetry? It's a question that the Arribada Initiative has been working to address for the past 3 years, and today at the World Marine Mammal Conference in Barcelona, we were delighted to be able...
I'm a Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow. In around 5 months time I'll transition to Alumni, as a Fellowship has a limit of 3 years. On the first day of my Fellowship I wrote a piece about the road ahead. Reading it back this morning, it reminded me of those early days,...
A few months ago, I went tree climbing to become a certified tree climber, advancing Arribada’s goal to improve the design and installation of arboreal technology and provide project design and field installation assistance to our partners. The first step toward this...
Arribada recently returned from field sites in Assam, India where we tested the image quality and detection abilities of low-cost thermal sensors for detecting elephants in conflict areas. Arribada is working on these thermal cameras as a winner of the WWF and...
Arribada just returned from our first thermal camera field trials in Greenland, where we tested the image quality and detection abilities of our chosen thermal sensors in an arctic climate, our prototype camera design and looked at real installation conditions and...
Polar bear detection
Thermopiles vs microbolometers. We review our research to date in Greenland and the challenge of detecting bears at -20C

Introducing the Arribada Horizon ARTIC R2 Developer’s Kit.
Add ARGOS satellite connectivity to your own device or design, or use it as a ready-to-go stand alone GPS and ARGOS tracker.
We’ve interfaced our Horizon GPS board with our new Argos ARTIC R2 transmitter to get you up and running quickly, compatible with next generation ARGOS-4 satellites and the future Kineis constellation of nanosatellites.
