SmARtview cow recognition and data retrieval for instant on-site monitoring
SmARtview aims to enhance a farmer’s knowledge of their cows and a vet’s expertise to deliver instant, individual data retrieval for faster and more accurate cow-side decision-making.
Typically, a vet or farmer faces the time-consuming process of examining a cow, then going to the farm office to review paperwork or PC-based records before determining treatment or intervention. SmARtview cow recognition and data retrieval would make the whole process faster, more efficient and effective.
This unique research project brings together farmers, vets, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) user experience (UX) and video games experts to develop ‘marker-less’ technology in an easily accessed and portable system. Marker-less technology is the key to recognising a cow by its skin pattern and shape, even in differing light and weather conditions.
