Bacticam - optical bacterial classifier
In collaboration with Distriktsveterinärerna and the National Veterinary Institute we develop an optical bacterial classifier. The classifier scan Petri dishes and identify bacteria culture in real time with the same reliability as a laboratory.
The aim of the project is to reduce costs for cultivation and analysis of bacteria culture for dairy farmers and veterinarians, increase the accuracy of bacterial identification as well as reduce the response time for the analysis.
VetLink is an innovative software solution that combines virtual veterinary visits and time-efficient working methods through an advanced AI that collects animal data, analyzes events and generates automatic action suggestions for the veterinarian and farmer. The aim is to develop a modern solution, which can become a new Golden Standard for veterinary care in Sweden and internationally.
VetLink increases the veterinarian's presence at the farm, contributes to faster and improved animal care, improves the working situation for both the veterinarian and the farmer while clarifying the role distribution between the parties and strengthening the veterinarian's status and integrity. These effects are achieved at the same time as the total costs can be reduced. VetLink also positively impacts the environment, partly by reducing carbon dioxide emissions through fewer business trips and, above all, through better and more accurate animal care when it comes to the use of antibiotics.
Finished EIP projects
Non-contact fever detection for safe and efficient animal care
The ambition of the project was to develop a non-contact fever detector for livestock, that measures the surface temperature of the cornea using thermal cameras. The purpose of the innovation is to facilitate animal care, minimize production losses and increase the efficiency of both dairy and pig producers' businesses. The aim was also a fixed system solution for continuous fever measurement where the animals pass the same camera station (eg dairy cows) and a handheld system solution for meat animals, pigs and horses where the heat camera communicates interactively and in real time with a server (eg cloud solution to store directly data on the animal).
