Leading global supplier in farm management
The customer is a leading global supplier in farm management. Tritech (now part of Prevas), as development partner, has developed and deployed a robust IoT systems for automated rutt detection of dairy cows. This has lead to an optimization of milk production and profitability for the farmer.
Radio based solution for rutt detection
In this project, we have developed a new radio-based system for automated rutt detection of dairy cows.
The system is based on radio-based activity meters located on the cow. The device communicates with Receivers usually located in the ceiling of the barn. The Receiver are then connected via a "system controller" to the farm's "Farm Management System" where data is analysed to give the farmer an optimal rutt detection for each individual dairy cow. Through a repeater function at the receivers and an opportunity to place them in a solar powered outdoor cabinets, one also cover grass land farms.
We have been technical responsible for all components of the system such as:
The products are designed for high volume manufacturing and are today delivered in large volumes worldwide. The products are designed for extremely tough environmental and certified to be sold globally.
The system gives the farmer an automatic rutt detection that reduces reproduction costs and optimizes milk production, and thus the overall profitability of the farm.
