Prototype performing automatic detection
In the movie below, automatic detection of a piglet birth is demonstrated by FarrowCam1.
When the movie starts, the displays of the device show a total number of 11 piglets born with the latest birth four minutes ago. Three seconds into the movie, a new piglet is born, and few seconds later when the detection algorithm has worked its magic, the displayed number of piglets increases by one to 12 while the time since last birth is set to zero. Things are working!
