Simulation and Analysis of Smart Animal Farm
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
A smart way of automating feeding process can be called as Smart Animal Farm. By implying an automated system we can eliminate possible threats to the feed by reducing the human intervention. Environment real time monitoring is an important factor in smart farming. There has been a strong relationship between humans and animals through-out the centuries. We depend on animals in many aspects of life such as sports, food, clothes and other product that support and facilitate our living. Therefore
... a good care of animals is very important. The livestock industry could greatly be benefitted from animals, aggregating the data and reporting the obtained results to owner and regional. Farming plays an important role in today's world and it requires proper environmental and diet care. A smart system is needed to operate and monitor animal farm remotely. This system should provide feed and water as required, exhaust the excess of biogas which is produced by the animals waste, and detect fire in the farm. Moreover, this intelligent system should also do surveillance of the entire farm. This kind of intelligent system can be designed cost electively by using microcontrollers, water level sensor, ultrasonic sensor, gas sensor, temperature, humidity sensor, and an IP Camera along with Internet or Intranet connectivity with the devices i.e. smart phones or computer. Automated feeding allows the farmer to ease his workload, save time and increase his flexibility. Automatic feeding systems deliver more feedings, less labour. This smart system can reduce the human intervention than the current scenario. This system will realize smart solution for feeding the animals and efficiently solve the issues related to farmers.
