Introduction to non-invasive biometric sensors

Non-invasive sensors, which are installed around the barn, include surveillance cameras and sensors in the feeding systems to monitor animal weight and feed intake. Non-invasive sensors also include sensors that can be easily attached to animals, such as pedometers, GPS and MEMS (microelectromechanical) based activity sensors, that can be used to monitor livestock behaviour.

What exactly PFL means?

The agricultural sector has one of the lower rates of digital technology utilization. But in the last 10-15 years things started to change, and the livestock and feed sectors are starting to take advantage of the new technologies. Let’s dig further!
