The authors' work show how the development of wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSANs) can help protect environmentally sensitive areas using virtual fencing. Virtual fencing enables the spatial control of large cattle herds to protect environmentally sensitive regions based on real-time decisions made within WSANs. These systems can transform the way we undertake our stewardship of the natural environment by providing pervasive technologies that manage and change the environment.
