Innovation for Precision Livestock
What can you build with AGL?
Bring your Innovation…
The Animal Health, Nutrition, and Production space is ripe for cognitive solution innovation. The industry is driven by many factors including rapid growing global demand for animal protein, shortage of skilled farm labor, minimizing environmental footprints, reduction or elimination of antibiotics and consumer awareness into animal production
The convergence of sensors, edge processing, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence will usher in an era of precision livestock farming and supply chain optimization, with end to end visibility for Animal Production Integrators and their ecosystem partners. These real-time animal care monitoring and nutrition / health product tracking solutions will be used to improve quantitative and qualitative industry metrics, ultimately resulting in a higher level of animal care and productivity.
IOT applications are typically supported by sensor devices that transmit small data packages (e.g. weather station transmitting temperature, pressure, humidity) over low speed cellular or Bluetooth connections. Dense Data IOT applications support high frequency (10-100 samples/sec) sensor data collection (e.g. sports player movement data that includes 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope data points) requiring a high speed (e.g. WiFi) connection. Since dense data is collected in the cloud, advanced machine learning and complex algorithm calculations can be applied real-time to the data.
AGL was founded in 2014 by a team of animal health and technology industry experts. In 2017, AGL launched the Vetrax Advanced Behavior Monitoring system. The system provides a voice for dogs by communicating behavior metrics captured from a wearable sensor to veterinarians and pet parents.
AGL has completed the heavy lifting for cognitive solutions to quantify health, wellness and productivity. Our platforms can quantify motion and perform advanced analytics in applications ranging from humans, animals, automotive, sports, equipment — any THING that moves!
