Pig Project

Weighing a pig is an important task for farmers and stockbreeders. This daily task is done in various methods resulting in financial and timely costs. ERC is currently working on something to make the task much more efficient, effective, and time saving! The Pig Project presents a way for farmers to calculate a pig’s weight via the Microsoft Kinect camera. The depth image from the Microsoft Kinect camera provides pixel values of a moving object while detecting something- other than moving objects,  the background is filled with a black color. Through the relation between pixels and our calculated weight algorithm, the pig weight could be calculated. Check out some of our pictures when we went to R.C. Farm to test out the equipment.
