A major area of concern in large scale livestock management in remote inland Australia is insuring that stock have adequate water. The monitoring of stock watering points is predominately conducted by manually inspecting the stock watering points, which for some remote cattle stations can be up to a 500km round trip conducted several times a week, particularly in summer and/or in drought conditions. This water monitoring can be conducted more efficiently through the use of telemetry technology. This report reviews existing telemetry communication systems which are capable of transmitting still images over long distances using UHF signal, particularly for use on remote livestock properties, and determining how the technology may be more cost effective and better implemented in remote areas. The scope of this project is to develop a telemetry system via UHF radio signal for a simplified and more cost effective solution to capture a still image and the provision of limited digital input/output functionality.
