Locating cattle with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)
CSIRO is working to develop, test and demonstrate the latest thermal remote sensing technology on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to identify the location of livestock in extensive rangelands. By using a UAV platform, cattle can be located across very broad areas to assist producers in improving the efficiency, and reducing the cost, of mustering often done by helicopter at great expense.
Precision Livestock Management
CSIRO is working on the development and application of new and emerging technologies with potential to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of livestock production systems through enhanced measurement, monitoring, movement and management of animals and their environment.
Measuring cattle body condition
CSIRO is working to develop, test and demonstrate the latest laser imaging and stereo imaging technology to monitor the body weight and condition of cattle. By then putting it together with predictive models, we hope to be able to calculate ahead of time so that producers and their advisers can make more accurate, informed and timely decisions regarding the day to day management of livestock.
