The camera is designed and built to sustain the elements of pig farming. From small to large scale deployment, monitoring, and management.
The project is set to focus on animal welfare and the profitability of farmers. Serket and Hikvision are set to validate a solution to reduce heat stress of pigs via behavioral analysis and feed supplement intervention resulting in sustainable practices and improved farm productivity.
Furthermore, Serket aims to develop an integrated service platform that automatically detects heat stress in pigs at an early stage and provides a targeted response with an alleviating supplement.
This solution can be deployed across pig houses and pens and helps farmers have more control over their livestock, fine-tune the feeding system, and reduce excessive use of antibiotic treatments, ultimately reducing the mortality rate.
Dileep Sharma, Marketing Lead at Serket, says: "With this collaboration, we will be helping livestock managers make better decisions on pig production and profit optimization, in a responsible and sustainable way. We aim to help livestock managers review their opportunities, use data and analytics to predict their future, run dynamic scenarios to bridge the gaps either from production or nutrition to health management and food safety."
Jeroen Kolsteren, Account Manager at Surveillance Support, says: ''After clearly identifying the challenge of this project, we recommended the 4MP ColorVu camera for visual data collection, primarily for its good performance in poorly lit environments. Surveillance Support looks back on a very successful and interesting project in cooperation with Serket and Hikvision. A project that once again proves the versatile applications of today's camera systems.''
Innovative AI solutions coupled with already existing surveillance camera systems make it possible for farmers to more efficiently distribute their valuable time. With the help of Hikvision and Serket’s solution, farmers can direct their attention to the individual animals that need their intervention more quickly and with care and focus on their farm operations.
