SENSYN ROBOTICS has developed an autonomous cage monitoring system in collaboration with TAIHO Industrial Corporation. SENSYN ROBOTICS is providing technology for AI analysis to detect dead chickens.
Because the inside of the egg-laying poultry house is a multi-layered system, it is often difficult to visually check from the ankles to the top of the head. It takes a long time to visually check for dead chickens, and since the work environment is dimly lit, smelly, and dusty, it is an obstacle to the daily patrols that are necessary. If this monitoring is neglected and detection is delayed, there is a high possibility that (1) epidemics will spread and (2) rotten eggs will flow out (automatic egg laying is interrupted by dead hens and they rot).
In the autonomous cage monitoring system, a robot that automatically patrols the poultry house travels autonomously through the poultry house and detects dead hens early by AI analysis using a visible light camera and a thermo camera to improve egg-laying efficiency (prevention of rotten eggs). High detection accuracy* is achieved.
*Detection rate (dead chickens detected/all dead chickens): 93%, false positive rate (live chickens/dead chickens determined to be dead): 0.3%.
A double check by a visible light camera and an infrared camera allows for highly accurate detection.
With the introduction of this system, there is no need for patrols to detect dead chickens, and only the removal of dead chickens that have been notified to us will be necessary.
In the future, we will aim to develop a system for managing the health of chickens, in addition to detecting dead chickens, and will not only save labor and manpower, but also improve the efficiency of work at the work site.
SENSYN ROBOTICS combines robotics technology such as drones with data to create new value by solving customers' business problems.
Voices from companies that have introduced the system
The task of monitoring and managing the health of chickens in the cages of poultry houses is important. Among them, missing dead hens in the cage can cause serious quality problems, such as rotten egg spillage. The detection process is done visually, but the workload for workers is very high.
The introduction of this autonomous cage monitoring system has made it possible to reduce the frequency of patrol work.
We expect that the introduction of this autonomous cage monitoring system will lead to further application of robotics technology in various fields.
About SENSYN ROBOTICS
Our mission is to evolve what is considered “commonplace” in society with the power of robotics. It is under this mission that we have continued to take on pressing challenges in regards to specific social issues in various fields focused on facility inspections, disaster response, and security and surveillance by achieving the full automation of work with the power of robotics since our establishment in October 2015.
