Task 3

Smart dairy farming: innovative solutions to improve herd productivity

Task 3 - Definition of a computer vision system based on machine learning techniques for the recognition of individual animals and development of models for decision support

This task aims to develop a computer vision system for the automatic detection and monitoring in real-time of individual cow, with particular reference to drinking behavior, on which specific computer vision techniques will be developed, validated and calibrated. The system developed in this task will also be applied in order to apply to develop the Task 5, to define numerical models useful for supporting the decisions of farmers.

The project is funded within the scope of Research Projects of relevant National Interest - Call for Proposals 2017
