This webinar is the April 2024 session of monthly series. The webinars include presentations on current topics in computer vision and its application to precision livestock farming. They combine presentation and ‘unconference’ discussions to showcase diverse perspectives and evolving knowledge related to computer vision and precision livestock farming. Moreover, these webinars stimulate and create opportunities for discussion that will inform current and future research and provide learning opportunities for trainees. For more information on the series, please visit the series' website.

The April 2024 speaker is Dr. Santosh Pandey. Santosh Pandey is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University. Currently, his team is working with swine researchers at Iowa State University to develop and apply electronic sensors for swine health monitoring, specifically to monitor pig activity and skin temperature. In this talk, he will discuss the different versions of sensor boards built in our laboratory and the methods of data collection and analysis for simultaneous monitoring of multiple pigs. He will discuss the tradeoffs in sensor performance, power consumption, Bluetooth communication, and sensor packaging for long-term swine health monitoring. Prior to Iowa State University, he completed the Bachelor of Technology in Electronic and Electrical Communication Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur), and M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. His research has been funded by grants from U.S. federal agencies, including USDA, NSF, NASA, and DTRA.
