Thingsfactory, an internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence product development company out of Montreal, Que., is launching the TF-400F, a rugged, weatherproof, portable body temperature sensor suitable for livestock.
The TF-400F can detect, analyze, and classify body temperatures of pig, cow, and horse populations in crowded, queued, or individual situations, in real-time. The new tool reduces temperature verification efforts by 95 per cent, and is accurate to within 0.1 of a degree.
The device is designed for harsh environments and can send notifications when high temperatures or abnormal behaviour are detected.
CEO and founder of Thingsfactory, Pierre Gauvin, says the company has seen major advances in research and development over the past year. “We are proud to unveil today the results of this work, which has made it possible to create products that not only showcase Quebec’s genius in IoT and AI, but that will also have a real impact in reducing material, financial, and human losses.”
The device will be available in mid-February.
