Abstract

This research focuses on animal welfare and serves as an application to precision livestock farming. A sick cough recognition algorithm is combined with a localisation procedure to identify and localise sick animals (pigs in this work) in their housing environment. It is intended to provide continuous 24 hour health monitoring in pig houses and produce early warning in cases where treatment is needed. Early warning can provide the expert with valuable time to assess the importance of the alert and provide treatment only for the animals that pose a high risk.
