Research areas

TrackLab is used for livestock research in various segments such as academic, veterinary, livestock breeding, and more. It is a tag-based system, which means that animals wear tags (collar-based, ear-tags, backpack, etc.) to collect data on their location and movement.

 


Customer quote

"The installation of TrackLab was a success and the whole team present for the installation were pleased with the accuracy and the possibilities of the system."

Indoor and outdoor solutions

The types of tags used in a TrackLab solution depend on the environment. For indoor environments, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) tags are used. For outdoor environment the system is typically based on GPS tags.

 


Animal tracking system

The TrackLab animal tracking system allows you to control recording sessions manually or with a calendar-based scheduling tool. After data collection, you can replay data and use maps, profiles, and heatmaps to visualize your results.

How does heat stress affect the health and welfare of dairy cows?

When environmental temperatures rise, livestock animals, such as dairy cows, are vulnerable to heat stress. Researchers Polsky and von Keyserlingk reviewed how heat stress affects animal productivity, health, and welfare.

ChickenStress project

The abolition of battery farming has improved chicken welfare, but there are still problems like feather pecking. In the ChickenStress project, we will try to understand better how to reduce stress and improve welfare.
