GORGAS tracker - Project: Malaria and Human Mobility in the Peruvian Amazon

The GORGAS tracker is an open-source GPS tracker developed by the Health Innovation Lab from The Institute of Tropical Medicine "Alexander von Humboldt". The GPS tracker was developed and used in a cohort study to investigate the role of human population movement in malaria epidemiology in rural villages in the Peruvian Amazon river networks.

GORGAS tracker 3D model

The GORGAS tracker is based on the Rephone platform (SeeedStudio) and has the following characteristics:

  • Long-life battery
  • Stores GPS coordinates and timestamp
  • Sets a buffer area and report if a participant move outside that boundary
  • Locks the interaction with the participant
  • Easy set-up during fieldwork using a laptop/tablet (visual interface)

Are you ready to build your own GORGAS tracker?

  • Hardware: Bill of materials and STL files
  • Scripts: GORGAS tracker algorithms
  • Visual Interface: PC/Tablet Visual Interface

Understanding the relationship between malaria transmission and human mobility in diverse endemic settings is key for designing and implementing locally adapted and sustainable control and elimination strategies (Rosa-Aguirre et al., 2017).
