Animal Identification Systems are necessary in scenarios where an individual animal has to be monitored, be it identifying cattle for Insurance and Precision Livestock Farming purposes or identifying activities of an individual in a group (troop of monkeys, swarm of bees) for research. Computer Vision can be employed independently or in combination with the existing methods, like RF tags, to accurately identify an animal.
Use Case Scenarios
Cattle Identification for Insurance
Computer Vision based precise cattle identification for mitigation of fraudulent insurance claims.
Identifying animals in Zoos, Wildlife Parks etc. to study their behaviour.
Tracking of Small Organisms for Social Behaviour and Ecological Research
Tracking of Insects (including bees, wasps, drosophila etc.), Arachnids, Reptiles, Fishes etc., in lab setup for social behaviour research.
