An innovative start-up working with cutting edge robotic technology for livestock

We develop professional livestock robots to increase welfare for animals, improve productivity for farmers and create less conflicting products for consumers. We are the creators of the ChickenBoy, the world-wide first ceiling-based smart robot that helps improve animal welfare and farm productivity at the same time. We have started with meat chickens, but will expand into other production systems and species. Our disruptive new technology balances animal welfare with productivity by using deep learning, pattern recognition and a combination of sensors (visual/thermal imagery, sound, temperature, humidity etc) to provide optimal decision support to farmers and others.
