OnMareData - Monitorization of mare behaviour during pregnancy and parturition

This Innovation Experiment aims to develop and test a smart device based on a three-axis accelerometer to detect parturition (and other pregnancy issues), which will serve as an early-warning system for farmers. The remote detection and monitorisation of foaling could be used to track possible problems to avoid or reduce foal losses. The smart device to be developed will be based on an existing solution for cattle, and this PREPARE innovation experiment will be the first step to developing a full commercial solution.
