22 Aug Copeeks : precision agriculture in livestock !
Precision agriculture : what is it ?
Precision agriculture is a subject that we had already discussed in a previous article on “wind measurement in precision agriculture“, but it is always important to recall the definition.
Also known as AGTech or Agri Tech, precision agriculture is defined by the integration of new technologies such as sensors, satellites or drones to optimize the yields of a plot of land . The goal is to achieve better productivity with fewer resources.
It’s a way for farmers to improve their comfort at work and have some benefits like:
- Improve their agronomy skills, for over- or under-application problems;
- Grow in a more sustainable way;
- Enhance the value of the farmers’ profession;
- Better understand the functioning of the soil-crop couple in relation to the weather;
- Use inputs economically and limit the environmental impact;
The use of decision support tools allows farmers to access different data via web or mobile applications.
Copeeks : solutions for a connected livestock?
Copeeks, based in Lannion in Brittany, is a player in precision agriculture. The company is a designer and manufacturer of decision support solutions for the agricultural world, particularly for livestock.
The objective is to offer a product that allows farmers to improve the living environment of animals and to contribute to the performance of livestock buildings.
Two solutions of Copeeks : Peek analytics et Diagno’Peek
For the moment, Copeeks markets two solutions: PEEK Analytics and Diagno’Peek. The first one allows to monitor the farms and to be alerted in real time in case of anomaly and the second one is a diagnostic tool for the atmosphere of the breeding buildings.
Other promising innovations are to come for the French company. Two new products are winners of the Innov’Space 2022 prize. The first novelty, HIP’PEEK, is intended for the equine breeding for the early detection of foaling by analyzing images.
While the second novelty, Copeeks realizes an autonomous robot of supervision of breeding, called RO’ PEEK. This robot is intended for animal or vegetal agricultural productions.
PEEK Analytics : continuous observation of the farms
The PEEK Analytics, for sale or rent, is an offer where the equipment equipped with sensors and a camera communicates on a data analysis platform with artificial intelligence.
The connected box is intended for a continuous observation in the buildings of breeding. Easy to install, the PEEK Analytics measures in real time the evolution of the atmosphere and the behavior of the animals are then analyzed and synthesized on the Copeeks Analytics platform.
The sensors integrated in the Peek analytics
It allows to collect images, videos and data from the associated sensors.
- A 160° HD camera,
- A probe for measuring temperature, humidity, NH3 and CO2,
- An external wireless temperature and humidity sensor,
- 4G and WiFi connectivity.
Peek analytics : the features?
Copeeks’ Diagno’Peek is a concentrate of technologies since this mobile equipment is used in parallel with an application that analyzes all the data collected.
In the form of a case, the Diagno’Peek is equipped with several connected ambient sensors. This allows for a real-time and accurate reading of the atmosphere in livestock buildings.
Data reading is simplified thanks to the Companion application. The latter is installed and set up on the touch tablet that comes with the Diagno’PEEK.
In the form of a subscription, here are the different functionalities of Compagnon:
- Real-time data reading,
- Data export in .CSV or Excel format,
- Data transfer via 4G connectivity
The key features of Diagno’PEEK
For whom ?
This solution, for sale or rent, is intended for poultry, swine and ruminant production.
The professionals who are concerned by this type of offer are the :
- Equipment manufacturers,
- Consulting firms,
Especially, as it is perfect for carrying out analyses in new facilities, establishing spot diagnostics or audits in breeding.
What are the sensors inside the Diagno’Peek?
The solution collects ambient data from multiple sensors including an ultrasonic wind vane-anemometer from LCJ Capteurs. The equipment includes:
- 4G and WiFi connectivity.
- Connectors to ambient sensors and sensor mounting systems on the tripod mast
- Ultraosnic wind sensor SONIC-ANEMO-SDI
- A Copeeks configured touchscreen tablet with its support fixed to the tripod
- An internal battery and a power supply.
- A storage and transport case with wheels.
- A tripod with an adjustable height (120 to 180 cm)
The influence of air currents in livestock buildings
What are the indicators to analyze in a livestock building?
The Diagn’PEEK consists of several sensors to perform a complete audit of the livestock building. Here are the main indicators:
- Air circulation,
- Nh3 (ammoniac, a toxic gas),
- Fine particles,
Environmental parameters that promote animal welfare
The audit is carried out in closed but also open livestock buildings where the atmosphere and environment are different for the animals (cattle, poultry, pigs, sheep, goats). It is important that there is good ventilation so that the air renewal is adequate to maintain health and productivity (for the animals and the breeders). Indeed, a good air circulation allows to reduce dust and humidity, thus a better environment.
Each analysis and audit are reasoned on a case-by-case basis, several points to consider such as:
- the region,
- the climate,
- the prevailing winds,
- the topography of the land,
- the method of breeding,
For more information on livestock building environments and emissions:
It remains complicated to talk about a subject that we are not confronted with every day. We prefer to provide you with additional elements to inform you about the atmosphere and emissions in livestock buildings, here are some french websites of information:
Copeeks is an actor of the precision agriculture, in particular with its Diagno'PEEK which carries out an audit of the buildings of breeding.
