PitStop1 - Open source turtle tag and turtle camera enclosure
PitStop1 is open source turtle tag enclosure we developed in collaboration with the Arribada Initiative. Turtle tags are used to track the movement of turtles and collect the information necessary to design better strategies for their conservation.
In this repository you can find all technical documentation for the latest version of the turtle tag enclosure and the turtle camera enclosure. The documentation for the version 1 of Pitstop1 is available in the branch version-1.
Read an article about the open source turtle tags and the development process and get in touch with us at Institute IRNAS for customization and orders.
The enclosure has to sustain in extreme circumstances while mounted on the turtle, such as being hit by rocks, the turtle rubs its shell at, or high pressure at depths up to 200m. To determine what material and sealing to use for the enclosure we did a series of tests.
