Technology of Agency of the Czech Republic has supported our project:
Shepherd free 4.0: Integration the Industry 4.0 in Animal Nutrition
The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is an organizational unit of the state that was founded in 2009 by the Act No. 130/2002 Coll. on the support of research, experimental development and innovation. The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic simplifies the state support of applied research and experimental development which has been fragmented and implemented by many bodies before the reform.
Our research partner AgroKonzulta Žamberk s.r.o. obtained a new grant from TACR Trend Shepherd free 4.0 FW03010010 (co-investigator Pavel Horky)
The aim of the project is to develop a completely unique device designed for controlled cattle grazing using GPS collars, which incorporates the principles of Industry 4.0. Using the proposed technology, it will be possible to manage pasture management online using progressive procedures that will be introduced into agricultural primary production. This cutting-edge technology will leverage the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), and data analytics to provide real-time monitoring and control of the grazing process. The established technology will also monitor the behavior and health status of animals, allowing farmers to make informed decisions about their care and well-being. Overall, this project is a prime example of how Industry 4.0 is transforming the agricultural sector by enabling more efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective methods of production.
