Headquartered in Germany, GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft is one of the largest system providers for food and energy processes, with about €5.4 billion in reported revenue in 2011. The firm's GEA Farm Technologies division, a manufacturer of effective animal-hygiene products, provides farmers with the ability to analyze individual animal behavior, sampled in real time. Learn how ultra-wideband (UWB) real-time location system (RTLS) tags are being used to pinpoint the precise location and activity of every individual animal by means of sensors located around the barn, directly to a farmer's PC, tablet or smartphone, providing a full and continuous analysis of each individual cow's position and behavior. Learn how the system provides useful data regarding the time animals spend in stalls, on walkways and during feeding, as well as the distances walked, thereby delivering an analysis of the health and heat cycle of each individual animal in real time.
