Mongoose 2000

A behavioural research tool for use in remote areas lacking reliable internet connectivity or power. Developed for the Banded Mongoose Research Project at Exeter University for use in their field site in Uganda, Mongoose 2000 uses a Raspberry Pi to synchronise behavioral observation data across multiple Android tablets used for daily recording of mongoose behaviour.

Source code and the app (only really useful with the raspberry pi wifi node) is on the play store.

You can read more about this project in our open access publication in PLoS One.
