Academic and business collaboration 

      • The project specifically involved developing and installing sensors that accurately measure the amount of feed in the silos in each pig farm and designing algorithms that can achieve a more efficient distribution of feed from production plants to each farm.
      • This project is a concrete and successful example of how collaboration between the worlds of science, academia and business can successfully help meet real needs.
      • Initiatives such as this can create a beneficial synergy for the academic, private and public sectors, as they apply agile and efficient solutions on the cutting edge of knowledge to highly complex problems whose empirical or traditional solution may be far from optimal.
      • According to the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the livestock industry accounted for over €20.2 billion of production in the Spanish economy in 2020. Research at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) has confirmed that this figure could significantly improve with the use of new technologies and artificial intelligence, and better control of all the procedures required in production.

      Universitat Oberta de Catalunya

      The Open University of Catalonia (Catalan: Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) is a private open university based in Barcelona, Spain.

      The UOC offers graduate and postgraduate programs in Catalan, Spanish and English in fields such as Psychology, Computer Science, Sciences of Education, Information and Knowledge Society, and Economics. Also, an Information and Knowledge Society Doctoral Program is available that explores research fields such as e-law, e-learning, network society, education, and online communities. It has support centers in a number of cities in Spain, Andorra, Mexico and Colombia.

      The UOC is also a parent institution of Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI).

      • A UOC industrial doctoral degree from the Network and Information Technologies program has concluded that incorporating artificial intelligence and applying it with devices, such as monitoring sensors, would optimize the livestock industry's restocking and service planning processes, leading to higher profit and reduced costs.
      • "Other more highly industrialized sectors have been benefiting from Industry 4.0 principles and proposals for years, but the livestock industry still suffers from a low degree of digitization," said David Raba, author of the thesis. He conducted the research INSYLO Technologies S.L., a company specializing in the development of volumetric sensors and environmental quality.

          • Resistance to new technology. The thesis also states that these technologies have been insufficiently adopted in agricultural facilities such as farms. One of the reasons for this lack of development is managers' resistance due to a lack of previous experience and deployment, as well as a lack of uptake of information systems to collect useful information on the operation and increased yield of facilities.
            • Raba warned that "incorporating and integrating all the stakeholders in this digitization exercise is key, as its benefits can be reduced if they're not all working together in sync".
          • Potential for growth in the industry. Currently, controlling the various supplies for an agricultural facility, particularly as regards matters such as the volume of feed needed and the right time to replenish it, is one of the main causes of the inefficiencies experienced by animal feed manufacturers and distributors. This is a problem where the implementation of new technologies can play a key role in minimizing its impact.
            • "The use of sensors for the remote monitoring of these farm stocks has been shown to be viable and effective in removing this information gap. Furthermore, having this reliable information makes it possible to apply methods usually applied to research and to optimize restocking processes and service planning," explained Raba.
