Non-invasive real-time monitoring of animal bio-responses using signal processing techniques
Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) is the use of modern technology in sensors, sensing systems (e.g. image, sound, etc.) and real-time modelling to realize the continuous automatic monitoring and management of livestock farming. This project aims to monitor health, behavior, welfare and productivity of animals in real-time. The objective of this project is to investigate if there is a possibility of monitoring vital, physiological and behavioral features of animals (e.g. Chicken, pigs, etc.) using different non-invasive sensor technology (microphones, ultrasonic, cameras, RADAR, etc.) coupled with novel signal processing technique (.eg. Wavelet analysis, machine learning techniques, etc.).
