COST Action LivAGE
Aims to enhance international discipline cooperation for exchanging ideas and knowledge, sharing good practices, assess technologies that could result in reducing the emissions of GHGs and ammonia from livestock buildings and thus to lead to a more environmentally friendly and sustainable livestock production.
Creation of a technology platform that integrates and harmonizes existing software and hardware technologies into a single system and makes use of robots equipped with sensors and active vision systems to automatically collect data from the field, feeding a farm management DSS and considering the agronomical, environmental and food safety aspects
Demonstrated the benefits of integrating different information streams for supporting efficient dairy production. It also developed know-how on user requirements for practical lameness detection system development through real-farm application, validation and robustification and evaluation of these systems in Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Ireland.
Brought together an international and interdisciplinary group of research teams from Europe, USA & Korea and relative SMEs for the purpose of forming an excellent centre of synergy in research, innovation and technology transfer in the area of agriculture production in greenhouse and livestock buildings aiming to remove the barriers that presently impede a fluent diffusion and actualization of the knowledge and know-how available in the field of new technologies applied to the CEA sector.
