Webinar ‘Internet of Food and Farm’

25th November 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Webinar Internet of Food and Farm (IoF2020) - Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 – Internet of Food and Farm (IoF2020)

The dairy sector is rapidly transforming through the implementation of Precision Farming solutions that offer decision support in the goal of optimising productivity through enhanced levels of fertility and animal health. The University of Strathclyde in partnership with a number of organisations across Europe has been developing data-driven innovative solutions funded by the European Commission under the “H2020 Internet of Food and Farm” Dairy Trial, which aims to derive additional animal behavioural insights through the aggregation of discrete sensor systems. The Webinar will showcase current solutions and underpinning technologies, the potential for the technology to benefit the Scottish dairy sector.

11.00 AM | Introduction to the Horizon 2020 Internet of Food and Farm (IoF2020) Programme

A brief overview of the IoF2020 project with a focus on the objectives and technologies.

Ivan Andonovic (Strathclyde University)

11.05 AM | IoF2020 – Dairy Trial Use Cases

A summary of the Dairy Trial of IoF2020 project.

Ivan Andonovic (Strathclyde University)

11.15 AM | Herdsman+

Detail of the University of Strathclyde-led Dairy Trial Use Case – Herdsman+ – with focus on sensor technology aggregation and the benefits derived from data-driven solutions.

Christos Tachtatzis (Strathclyde University)

11:30 AM | Parkend Farm – Farmer’s perspective

Brian will detail the experiences of operating two on-farm precision farming systems – neck-mounted collars and milking robots – and the benefits that have been derived from the systems individually. The challenges faced in the use of these technologies will also be highlighted.

Brian Weatherup (Parkend Farm)

11.40 AM | Demonstration of Multiple Systems Integration

The challenges of integrating multiple data streams from standalone systems provided by different vendors remains a massive barrier to more efficient operations. The technology required to implement the integration is not the obstacle and a demonstration of a typical fusion of data will be showcased by GlasData, a company offering such a capability.

Robert Sanders (Glas Data)

10.55 AM | Future Applications

The perspective on potential technology trends for the dairy sector comprising a broader overview of the technology landscape, including novel sensor applications (bolus for rumination detection, machine learning developments for non-intrusive analysis of cattle behaviour).

Craig Michie (Strathclyde University)
