Folio3 built a solution for a cattle counting solution that utilizes machine learning to provide an accurate count of cattle/livestock in real-time using live video from HD drone cameras operated by the client’s staff. The cattle entering or leaving the facility will be recorded and the video/images would be used to automatically detect and a count would be given for that particular herd or movement.
Folio3 developed and trained the machine learning model to be deployed in the solutions and also built a complete dashboard to manage and run the solution and reporting system.
With Folio3’s cattle counting solution, Hancock was able to automate the cattle monitoring and counting process and remove human error from the process leading to increased efficiencies and a reduction in cost.
