tRackIT Systems
Automated detection of wild animals

Wildlife telemetry

With the help of ultra-light VHF transmitters, the spatial use of different animals has been studied for decades by means of cross direction finding in ecological research

Automated recording

Self-sufficient solar-powered receiving stations record VHF signals from tagged animals and forward them to a central system

Server-based evaluation

The decentralized data is collected on a server system and automatically evaluated with regard to the ecological planning criteria.

How our product works

The EcoHub DB offers a user-friendly web interface for recording all project data. A multi-platform app called EcoHub Field is currently under development. Each signal can be assigned to an individual animal and the data is stored in a time series database before being further processed and visualized into various data products such as positions. The data is processed quickly and almost in real time. Once the project has been completed, final evaluations can be carried out in EcoHub Lab.

Selected projects

The tRackIT system in meadow brood protection

tRackIT Systems’ technology can enable continuous monitoring and detection of wildlife in conservation projects. Our solutions offer automated radio telemetry and AI-powered methods for acoustic detection of birds, bats and amphibians to provide accurate data for infrastructure and conservation projects.

Continuous telemetry of oystercatcher chicks

The German breeding population of oystercatchers has declined significantly over the past 25 years. For this reason, tRackIT is working with the Michael Otto Institute to tag and monitor oystercatcher chicks in order to investigate the survival rates and breeding success of the birds in selected areas on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein.

Curlew telemetry in Bavaria

The populations of many meadow-breeding bird species have declined sharply in recent decades. The population of black-tailed godwits in Germany has more than halved, the number of lapwings in Germany has fallen by 93% since the 1980s, the curlew was a common bird of raised bogs and fens until the 20th century and is now threatened with extinction.

Lapwing and black-tailed godwit populations

The lapwing and black-tailed godwit populations in the Dümmer lowlands (Ochsenmoor) are among the most important inland populations in Lower Saxony. Together with the Natur- und Umweltschutzverein Dümmer e.V. (NUVD), BIOCONSULT Osnabrück and the Lower Saxony State Agency for Water Management, Coastal Defence and Nature Conservation (NLWKN), chicks of wet grassland-dwelling limicolous species have been studied here using the tRackIT system since 2023.
