Automated Monitoring System of Pig Behavior Based on RFID and ARM-LINUX
An automated monitoring method for pig behavior was proposed after analyzing the disadvantages of traditional observation methods for abnormal behavior of pigs. An embedded detecting system based on RFID Technology and ARM-Linux was designed to monitor the pig behavior. The system is based on ARM-LINUX platform, using the embedded equipment which installed in pig's feeding area, monitoring pigs and collecting feeding data all the day. Through data analysis, the system can automatically detect abnormal behavior of pigs, and send the relevant information to the monitoring center and the staff's mobile through the GPRS network. The staff can get information at any time by human-machine interface to know the growth status of pigs. The experimental results show that the system has the good properties in real-time and stability. The system provides good technical support for intelligent precision feeding and has broad application prospects.
