Smartbell, the internet of cows®

What is Smartbell?

Smartbell is the internet of things applied in the world of farming to empower farmers with information that helps drive their decision making towards a more sustainable future.

The food security crisis is very real and looming: according to reports, there is only 60 years of farming left at current rates of resource use. With innovative technology and analytics driven solutions, livestock farming industry can be disrupted to improve yields in a sustainable way.

What are you working on at the moment?

Something very exciting – we are collaborating with the University of Cambridge to conduct a live farm trial. We are very excited to be supporting and furthering research towards animal welfare.

How did you come up with this idea?

The smart farming idea was conceived in the Smart Cities Venture Creation weekend in November last year.

Agriculture is an area of high need and ready for disruption, and there is a large gap in precision engineering technology solutions for animal husbandry. This triggered our pitch for Smartbell, the internet of cows®.
