KVAL: SPOT-ON – Monitoring system for animal production

Alternative title: SPOT-ON - Overvåkingssystem for dyreproduksjon

Awarded: NOK 0.50 mill.

Project Number:


Project Period:

2021 - 2022

Funding received from:



The SPOT-ON technology has recently got support from Norges forskningsråd. Our researchers @Marianne Oropeza-Moe and @Tore Framstad/NMBU - Norwegian University of Life Sciences in collaboration with @Kyrre Delin Fredriksen and @Mads Martinussen/@Inventas will develop and test a new device for farrowing prediction and infectious diseases control in farm pigs. This novel technology which has been already granted with a patent in Sweden will allow better control of pigs without restricting their freedom to move and without interfering in their quality of life. The Qualification project “SPOT-ON – Monitoring system for animal production” opens a door to implement important science research into an easy-to-handle and comfortable technology for a better animal care and digitalization of farming #innovation #foodindustry #farming #pigs #lifesciences #technology #scienceandtechnology #research #university #quality #medicine #veterinary #products #infectiousdiseases #marketing
