Fitness tracker for cows to help farmers

Fitness tracker for cows to help farmers

New technology allows farmers to track where their cattle graze or unusual movements that could indicate theft or illness.

Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and agricultural technology start-up Ceres Tag have created a new type of “fitness tracker” to help farmers keep track of where their livestock are and what they are doing.

Ceres Tag smart ear tag for livestock

Ceres Tag smart ear tag for livestock

James Cook University has been awarded an Advance Queensland Innovation Partnerships (AQIP) to investigate a machine learning approach to terrestrial based geolocation with CSIRO for Ceres Tag. The project will see the development of an ultra-low power ear tag capable of lasting years on a single battery charge, with a range of at least 10 kilometers. While time of arrival triatelation is a well understood approach, our system will correct multipathing errors by applying machine learning neural networks using real time fixed location and environmental data.
