    IBM, MTN and Wageningen University's IoT powered solution fits animals such as zebra, wildebeest, eland and impala with custom made sensors which will transmit data on their behavior to the IoT platform. As a result, plains game such as the zebra, act as sentinels and their response patterns provide an early warning in the battle to save endangered rhinos. (Credit: IBM)
