ANIMAL HEALTH MONITORING WITH MISSING AND THEFT PREVENTION DEVICE USING WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK AND INTERNET OF THINGS
A device to know the health status of all the animals in a farm along with its missing and theft prevention is proposed in this article. The necessary sensors to sense the health information of animals and the short range wireless communication technology and internet to communicate with the owner of the farm, are planned to use in the devices. This system will be very helpful to diagnose the health condition of all the animals simultaneously and to improve it. The system can prevent the animals from missing or theft. A mobile application which acts as a user interface provides the owner with useful information such as animal’s body temperature, heart rate, rumination and their presence inside the farm. The prototype of this idea is developed and is included for testing. Since the animal health status can be monitored from anywhere in world using a mobile application, the device will ease the work of farm owner and the laborers.
