Webinar 2: The Hardware

We're calling on the community to build ML models using the Edge Impulse Studio and tracking dashboards using Avnet's IoTConnect, which will be deployed onto 10 production-grade collars manufactured by our engineering partner, Institute IRNAS, and deployed by Smart Parks.

In this second  ElephantEdge webinar, you'll get an in-depth look at the hardware/ firmware IRNAS is developing and how it will be deployed by Smart Parks in their elephant tracking collars.
