Robotics in pig production
Robots can improve animal welfare, safety and production in swine production. They don’t tire, can do heavy work and do so 24/7. The Boar Bot is designed to help the boar check sows for heat. Robots cleaning facilities improve conditions and address environmental and societal concerns such as reducing odour, emissions and animal welfare and improve sanitation.
Facial recognition of pigs is already a reality thanks to AI. AI uses algorithms to mimic human decision-making. Often used in conjunction with hardware technologies that collect data, such as robots, sensors and machine vision. Recognition systems track individual pigs in the pen, monitor feed & water intake, movement, etc, identifying and even suggesting the ideal feed programme for pigs.
