AnimalSense - A competence center for animal sensor technology
By establishing a competence center in the area of farming technology and connecting researchers from both animal science, technical research, farmers, reindeer herders and companies from the ICT sector to this competence center the project can provide new tools to improve the efficiency and quality of the farming and reindeer herding sector within the Botnia-Atlantica region.
The competence center will work on three specific cases during the project period where strong collaboration can be built on. These cases are positioning and activity monitoring technology for cattle in loose houses, positioning and monitoring system for grazing animals, and reindeer warning system to reduce number of reindeer killed on road and railway.
