DADAFI develops a platform to radically improve decision support and consulting services in dairy farming. We leverage open data models to achieve interoperability for smart monitoring and advising, and for better adoption of dairy farming equipment. We design tools to collect and integrate data from farm equipment, such as Smartbow® our advanced animal activity and health monitoring system for fertility, activity and rumination monitoring. We help dairy farming consultants and veterinarians to radically improve their interactions with farmers, and to offer customized monitoring recommendations and trigger actions for improved herd management. We help dairy barn equipment and data suppliers to easily integrate monitoring capabilities of their equipment and sources, and to advertise them for broader use. For data integrators we offer secure APIs to leverage data and provide add-on services.
Goals and Challenges
We aim at offering a scalable solution for interoperable sharing and integration of data as well as offering and advertisement of monitoring capabilities and consulting services. Our main challenge is to satisfy our customers’ requirements regarding security in data handling, user friendliness, flexibility, interoperability, ease of integration and data analytics.
