Development of a database for sensors for automated data recording at livestock farming
Automated data recording at livestock farming enabels continuous online assessment of animal-related data, climate / environment data and construction data. To get an overview of the different systems on the market, a database is created, with which the systems are recorded and characterized in their functionality.
Today's sensor technology offers many opportunities to optimize livestock farming. Because of the very large and confusing market for sensor systems, a comprehensive database will be built, that can be used by livestock farmers, science and research. The database of sensors for automated data recording at livestock farming shall provide information about what the sensor records, which technology is hidden behind each sensor and how it works in detail. Finally it is detected how the automated recorded data of the sensor works and is evaluated. To answer the questions detailed criteria, which allow a comparability between the sensors, are integrated into the database.
The ascertainment of marketable sensors is made with the help of an extensive database of manufacturer, which is processed chronologically. The information retrieval occurs with a literature research followed by a personally or written survey.
1. What does the sensor record in which areas?
2. Which technology is hidden behind each sensor and how does it work?
3. How does the data recording of the sensor work and how are these evaluated?
