Iron Sheep

THE CHALLENGE: eMobile Pastoralism

Help pastoralist communities around the world preserve their livelihood, by providing them access to information and resources (e.g grass land, water, safe routes) to prepare and support their migration journey.

The objective of the project is to design a working prototype for a mobile application which provides pastoralists community with information on land monitoring: water availability, grassland, and assist communities in networking.


IRON SHEEP is a pastoralism oriented app, which connects shepherds from isolated communities and allows them to access to very important information related with the quality and quantity of pastures.

IRON SHEEP is very easy to use application that can trace routes through areas with higher performance pastures, while adding very relevant information related with the quantity of grass of the route, estimated time and distance and accuracy of the data.

Thinking about the safety of the shepherds, IRON SHEEP shows meteorological information and it includes Emergency Call Functions.

And it is important to highlight that shortly, IRON SHEEP will be able to collect very important data for predictive purposes, it will show specific POIs, and it will help shepherds to organize their tasks knowing what other shepherds are doing around them.
