Automated Pig Localization in Pigsties
The current localization of pigs in pigsties can be done manually by animal observations, in a limited scope by RFID transponders or by video analysis, whereby the recognition of individual animals are problematic.
The localization data can be used for example to evaluate the animal husbandry, the individual animal welfare and the herd dynamics, so that problems can be detected and remedied faster by developed algorithms.
The background of this project is the continuing rising trend of the number of pigs per farmer with the consequences of:
