RPi Roundup – 6th May 2014
We hope everyone had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and that you managed to get up to some Raspberry Pi-related activities!
The Big Story
Cambridge Consultants and the Zoological Society of London have pioneered the use of the Raspberry Pi in conservation and preservation projects. Previously, they used their Pi-powered project, called Instant Wild, to monitor wildlife in Kenya to count animals and catch poachers in-the-act. They have now announced that, since January, they have been using the same equipment to monitor penguins in Antarctica. The Pi is used to send photos and data back from the unit (pictured above) via an Iridium (satellite) uplink. You can read a lot more about the project over on Cnet.com.
