Aims:  In order to meet the increased global bovine meat demand, reduce losses due to diseases and improvise current cattle husbandry techniques, it is necessary to  develop  a wearable sensor node which measures parameters such as the temperature of the animal and monitors its activity. To map health issues and disease symptoms with respective sensors.  To effectively transfer the wireless data to the receiving end and  the design should be sensitive and reliable. The sensor’s performance should be tested  on similar objects as an unhealthy cow and faulty nodes. Cost of sensors must economic in terms of the Canadian cattle sensor markets and power saving strategies for health monitor’s future performance should be evaluated.

Study design: This research projects the design of a health monitor which wirelessly transmitted the mean activity and skin temperature of the animal to the herd administrator. The activity and behavior was determined by a dual axis accelerometer, temperature using a digital temperature sensor which was controlled by the propeller P8X32A micro controller board using SPIN programming.

Place and Duration of Study: Design and experiments at Bio signals Research Lab, University of Guelph from January 2014 to December 2015.

Methodology: Simulated experiments were carried out using the designed sensor at a frequency of 30 minutes intervals continuously for 72 hours in the lab. Experiments were first carried out using sensor simulations on standard temperature and normal activity levels then trials of controlled experiments were carried out with variants deviating from the standard value, with reference to the symptoms as derived before. 

Results: Simulated results show that the designed system was sensitive to the experiments and the designed sensor be used monitor cattle health and detect symptoms of common diseases. Large scale market analysis was compared with Canadian cattle sensor markets and power saving methods was discussed.





Kazi  Naziba Tahsin and Yi Wai Chiang. " Recent Developments in Sensor systems used for Cattle Monitoring and Future Prospectives." To be submitted in  Elsevier - Livestock Production Science.  (under preparation)

Abstract :Beef is one of the most consumed meat worldwide according to World Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations . Meat production rates are to increase by 70% in order to meet the increasing world bovine meat demand. Developments in cattle farming tools and husbandry techniques have taken place and can be predicted about the near future. This paper reviews the several categories of monitoring technologies either static or moveable. Technology has advanced for invasive and non invasive sensor technology to be used for health parameter monitoring according to both the farmer and the animal’s feasibility. The respective advantages and flaws were discussed further. Cattle monitors available commercially in North American market were described. All the systems discussed, both current and ongoing research, aim to monitor cattle health and detect symptoms of common diseases, increasing cattle yields, reducing illnesses and veterinary costs.

“Controlling Surgical Robots”
The introduction of robotics in surgery is a new and flourishing field in today’s world. Surgical Robots promise their patients a minimally invasive operation, allowing specialists to operate via the robot to remote areas and the operation of sensitive areas to be operated by magnified 3 D vision. The control of these robots is very complex and is an ongoing research topic for many. This review, was to describe the control processes available today, controls starting from the surgeon’s side cart to the patient’s side cart. The manipulator feedback systems used in these robots, which manufacturers rarely disclose was tried to be revealed in this review paper. This paper further discussed the future ongoing improvements for the hap tic arm controllers, the advancement of tele-robotic surgery and the automation of surgical robots.

 "Simulation of Localization used in Wireless Sensor Networks  by Semi definite Programming "

An optimisation solution for the wireless network localisation problem based entirely on connectivity-induced constraints is described. Anchors distance in the network is formulated as a set of geometric constraints on the system. The final solution of a problem for combining all constraints yields tracking for the unknown positions of the nodes in the network. There is a variety of different approaches to solve this problem such as semi-definite programming (SDP) based, sum of squares and second order cone programming, and between them, SDP-based approaches have shown good performance. In our project, the primary SDP approach had been modelled and its performance  was compared by simulation results of other papers in order to enhance its performance. In SDP approaches, errors in approximating the given distances are minimized as an objective function and thus the error was the main object of comparison.

“Design of  wearable wireless sensor node for detection of H1N1, avian flu, in poultry farms using MEMS technology.”

Detection of early stages of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in infected chickens requires intensive surveillance of host animals best accompanied by a wearable wireless node with a thermistor and an accelerometer,  Earlier developed prototypes, were however unable to detect many strains of H1N1 viruses using fever or other measures of the further evolution of HPAI. A wireless sensor network that detects a variety of early HPAI symptoms indicating reduced appetite and a significant reduction in egg production in a chicken cage would therefore be highly useful as an effective signal of the outbreaks. An improved design of the sensory node prototype involves a thermistor, an accelerometer and a mass sensor along with an egg counter for that particular cage. Experiments used differences in body temperature, reduced egg count, no significant reduction in the mass of food in the counter and lower activity levels. When any two of the four counterparts coincide together over a number of sensor nodes, the user should be alerted. Results include detection based on a greater range of symptoms; greater accuracy of measure and identifying of false alarms; including the sensor location, through the web server. In this project, thus, an improved detection of avian influenza in the early stages of detection will be shown.

“Prion Protein Detection Methods in Food.”
Prion diseases are occurring in many places due to consuming animal proteins infected with prions. However meat could be tested and several other parts could be consumed in delicate cuisines if proper detection methods were used. This project was a review on the prion protein detection bio-assay system and bio sensors available in the market. Interpretation and comparison of results in computational form from Surface Prism Resonance and the Quartz Crystal Mass deposition techniques which are the most widely used methods for prion detection till date.

“Process Intensification of Municipal solid waste to energy plants”
Project objective was to redesign the MSW waste to energy plant overcoming all the problems in current plants using PI techniques such as energy use reduction by reducing start-up and shut-down times which causes energy losses or by heat integration. Cost reduction by new developed equipment by reducing the use of fuels for combustion. Increased process flexibility by using more integrated reactors and inventory reduction by decreasing the size of the flu gas treatment unit. Greater attention to quality and increase waste to energy conversion efficiency. Better environmental performance by eliminating many of gas volumes and components.
