TNO about large scale sensor data logistics

Matthijs Vonder of TNO will be talking about Large scale sensor data logistics for Smart Dairy Farming at the ISN Conference

E-reading en Tablet EventThe goal of the Smart Dairy Farming (SDF) project is to support dairy farmers in the care of individual animals. With the specific goal of a longer productive stay at the farm due to improvement of individual health. In SDF cow models are developed by experts to give a farmer specific work-instructions on a specific cow. These models are fed with near real time sensor data from different (existing and new) systems on the farm.

In the presentation our vision is presented on how to develop sensor data logistics on a large scale. In the Netherlands there are 18000+ farms with in total ca. 1.5 million milk cows. The ingredients are: transparency in the chain, open innovation, InfoBroker, cow-centric-sensor-data, (near) realtime and the farmer in control. Our motto is “Think big, start small”. And it can be re-used/converted in other domains as well
