The Cow Is Really Laughing Now
The smaXtec is changing agriculture in the most unexpected way. This health monitoring is a bolus, a sort of capsule that contains an STM32L431KC and our LIS2DW12 and that sits in one of the cow’s stomach to track its temperature, movements, and pH, to determine, among other things, if she’s in heat. It can significantly improve the results of insemination, thus saving farmers a lot of time and money. The system connects to a base station that sends data to a cloud platform. Thanks to our low-power solutions, the product can stay inside a cow for four years, which will be the typical timeframe within which a dairy cow is productive.
