Title: Precision Livestock Farming: principles and examples for poultry

 

 

Biography
 
Daniel Berckmans obtained a Master Degree and a Ph. D. in Bio-Science Engineering at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. He is full professor, leads the Division M3-Biores (Measure, Model and Manage Bioresponses), Department of Biosystems, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
 
The main field of research consists of real time signal analysis of humans, animals and plants, by using technology like wearables, cameras and microphones. The activities comprise the measurements, modelling and monitoring or management of individual living organisms. The focus lies on the development of real time wearable algorithms to monitor and control Complex, Individual and Time varying Dynamic (CITD) living organisms.
 
During the last 20 years, the research group permanently counted approx. 25 researchers who prepare a Ph.D. The research team is considered as a worldwide leading team in Precision Livestock Farming. Half of the team is working on animal applications and half on human applications like intensive care unit, stress monitoring, sleep monitoring etc. 
Daniel is co-author of 253 scientific articles in peer reviewed journals and 364 papers in conference proceedings. He is member of several international advisory boards, visitation commissions in several European countries, and 6 international professional organisations worldwide. 
 
Daniel has been a member of more than 61 Ph. D commissions in 9 different countries. Since 1982, 17 products have been developed for the world market in co-operation with industrial partners with whom royalty agreements were concluded. 19 patents have been submitted and about 20 projects with a mean value of 400.000 euro per project are continuously managed within the group. He is coordinator of several EU-projects with a total value of over 10 M euro. Daniel is co-founder of 2 spin-off companies: BioRICS NV in 2006 and Soundtalks NV in 2011. Written research agreements have been signed with over 35 research teams worldwide. About 125 theses for engineers (5-years-master’s degree) have been finished in the team.
