Welcome to e-obs GmbH!

We are an innovative company specialized in engineering and the production of high-end GPS telemetry products to study animal movement and behaviour.

Our special focus are lightweight GPS-tags with several sensors combining high data rates, intelligent recording and remote data download capabilities.

Our products enable researchers to analyse small scale movement (e.g. cat following a path) and to identify distinct behaviors (e.g. bird in active flight vs. gliding vs. resting on ground).

e-obs offers tags and collars in numerous shapes and sizes for a variety of study approaches.

Please get in touch with us to learn more… (contact us).

News & Conferences

All planned conferences have been canceled or were held as a virtual conference; an interesting experience.

We hope that everything will normalize in 2021 and that in-person conferences will be possible again.

As of now, we have no news concerning 2021 but will publish them as soon as possible.
