'Internet of animals' spreads its wings
10 September 2018
The French satellite system ARGOS that for 30 years has been used to track animals across the globe is getting a major overhaul and expansion.
A new company, Kinéis, will take over its operation and launch 20 small satellites to start tracking objects of all kinds as well.
There is a growing market for services that manage connected devices.
