Abstract

Smart animal husbandries require the adoption of dedicated tools to assess the contribution of each animal to the production process. The IoT platform presented in this article is a real-team monitoring system for voluntary weighing of cattle. To this end, the ISO 18000-6 standard is used for animal identification through an ultra-high-frequency radio link between a reader antenna and suitable ear tags. A customized data processing algorithm has been developed and embedded in the considered system. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the solution, extensive measurements have been carried out in a real-life environment. The proposed IoT platform is useful to farmers as a control tool for selection and breeding work.
