The goal is to develop a flexible and affordable device for comprehensive monitoring of bird behaviour on nests. The device will be able to record the presence of individuals tagged with chips (RFID), to measure changes in temperature and humidity in the nest and to take pictures / videos according to the optional scheme. The information will be automatically aggregated and sent to the mobile network for further processing according to the combination of modular set. The device will allow to monitor a large number of units (nests) at once without increasing human resource and time requirements. With data, it's also possible to easily work and evaluate them with user-friendly software tools (R environment).
