My current research interests focus on wireless sensor networks and in particular the application of sensor systems within the area of animal health monitoring and precision livestock farming. Currently we are researching methods to process signatures derived from a neck mounted accelerometer in order to determine when a cow is in heat, when she is eating, drinking, ruminating, lying, standing or walking. This information facilitates the detection of a range of welfare events and enables farmers to optimise the performance of their herd.
