With its case, Nedap represents the agri & food sector. Her recently developed Augmented Reality solution is an addition to the existing Nedap CowControl system. A so-called SmartTag, which can be seen as a Fitbit for cows, monitors the behavior of the animals 24 hours a day. Based on this data, farmers receive essential insights into the health, nutrition, fertility and location of their cows. This enables them to significantly improve efficiency, animal well-being, production and profitability.
With the Microsoft’s HoloLens, Nedap is now able to bring these herd insights to life in the barn. Through a combination of Mixed Reality and Nedap CowControl, relevant insights are shown in the farmer’s field of vision, exactly above the right cows. Through hand gestures and voice commands, the farmer can navigate through the interface and register information automatically.
