By | Livestock Farming, Solutions | No Comments

Majalengka, 9 October 2018 — DycodeX marks a milestone in the local IoT industry as the first company to conduct Indonesia’s first NB-IoT field trial. The field trial utilizes the newest version of the DycodeX-developed, IoT- and AI-based Precision Livestock Farming solution, SMARTernak, which uses NB-IoT technology.

DycodeX and XL Axiata conducts Indonesia’s first NB-IoT field trial at PT. Sumber Hijau Mandiri, Majalengka, West Java.

DycodeX, along with XL Axiata, conducted the trial in PT. Sumber Hijau Mandiri cattle farm in Majalengka, West Java.

NB-IoT, or Narrowband IoT, is the latest radio technology that allows machine-to-machine communication in a wide, massive area without compromising on power and cost. The technology, which is based on LPWA (Low Power, Wide Area) network allows for a more efficient and effective means in developing IoT-based devices and applications.

Alwin Arrasyid, IoT Engineer at DycodeX, comments on the success of the NB-IoT field trial. “We are proud to finally be the first Indonesian company to test NB-IoT technology in the field, and not in labs,” he remarked. “I hope in the future, NB-IoT coverage will be available in more and more areas in Indonesia. Hopefully this will lead to a significant decrease in the cost of modules and general development.”

DycodeX has previously conducted four field tests with SMARTernak in various farms in Indonesia, including in Padang Mengatas, West Sumatera as well as in Subang and Bogor, West Java. The aims for the field tests were twofold: to train SMARTernak Artificial Intelligence by feeding it real knowledge about cattle farming, as well as to receive feedbacks from cattle farmers.

Coinciding with XL Axiata 22nd anniversary, DycodeX appreciates XL Axiata for their continuous support to the development of the local IoT industry by providing the infrastructure for NB-IoT that can be used by IoT practitioners in Indonesia.

SMARTernak Conducts Fourth Field Trial to Improve AI by Collecting Cattle Behavioral Pattern

By | Livestock Farming, Solutions | No Comments

Subang, West Java — SMARTernak by DycodeX, Indonesia’s first home-grown Precision Livestock Farming solution based on Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), conducted its fourth in-field trial in a cattle farm in Subang, West Java on Wednesday, 12 September 2018. This will be the second time SMARTernak trials in Subang, previously having visited the city in May 2018.

SMARTernak Field Trial at Subang

“We’re happy to be introducing SMARTernak to more cattle farmers in the West Java area,” DycodeX CEO Andri Yadi remarks. “We hope to bring SMARTernak’s IoT and AI technologies to improve cattle farming in more farms throughout Indonesia.”

DycodeX team with Mr. Andi, local cattle farmer

This field testing commenced by SMARTernak, after we previously conducted trials in Subang and Padang Mengatas, receving positive feedbacks from the local cattle farmers. The field testing’s objectives are twofold: to collect behavioral patterns from cattle to improve Artificial Intelligence and to introduce SMARTernak to more cattle farmers.

In-field trials allows SMARTernak’s AI to collect behavioral patterns from real cattle farms. Collecting behavioral patterns is an important step to effectively “teach” real-life knowledge into SMARTernak’s Artificial Intelligence (AI). One of these data is cattle movement that will ultimately be used by the AI to predict future cattle movement and activities. Cattle farmers can then use this data to effectively manage cattle and prevent unwanted occurrences from happening.

SMARTernak field testing is also to get real feedback straight from the people who know it best: Indonesian cattle farmers. Receiving feedbacks from actual cattle farmers is an essential step for us in the improvement of SMARTernak so it can be optimized further.

“Having a device that reads live data from cattle saves us from having to periodically report directly to the farm owner, which is usually difficult because he is not always around,” says Mr. Andi, a local cattle herder.

Quicklook: SMARTernak Web Dashboard

By | Livestock Farming, Solutions | No Comments

SMARTernak reveals its web dashboard to the public eye for the first via a video demo shown at Asia IoT Business Platform. This web dashboard, along with its accompanying apps for iOS and Android, allows cattle-farmers to remotely monitor their SMARTernak-integrated cattle from over the Internet.

With the web dashboard, cattle-farmers can see which cattle are productive and which need special care or attention. All of this data is transmitted in real-time upon movement and physical changes in cattle. Upon closer look, you may see in-depth data about the cattle displayed in the dashboard. These data are explained as follows.

Main Dashboard Page

The main page of the SMARTernak dashboard shows information about cattle well-being.

The main dashboard functions as the primary hub for insights and recommendations so cattle farmers can act accordingly and maintain cattle productivity. The main dashboard displays events as they happen to the cattle and updates them in real time. The to-do list tab allows cattle-farmers to manually add tasks, or allow the SMARTernak AI to automatically suggest recommended actions.

The data displayed within the main dashboard is displayed as follows:

  • In Heat: Shows the number of cattle in estrus, e.g. receptive period in the sexual cycle.
  • Calving: Shows the number of cattle nearing the time to give birth to a calf.
  • Weight Gain: Shows the number of cattle which weight is increasing.
  • Active: Shows the number of cattle which engages in physical activities, e.g. moving around
  • Sick: Shows the number of cattle that catches a disease.
  • Lame: Shows the number of cattle that are idle in a certain period of time.
  • Unseen: Shows the number of cattle which has not send an update in a certain period of time.
  • Watch List: Shows the number of cattle marked for special attention

Tracking Page

SMARTernak Tracking Page shows cattle location and notifies users upon going out of bounds.

The Tracking Page displays a map with the cattle farm’s coordinate as its center. The cattle farm is restricted within the area in purple; while the pen is in blue. These restrictions are designated with virtual fencing which automatically detects cattle that stray out of bounds, and trigger an alert so cattle farmers can act accordingly.

Cattle Detail Page

See detailed information about each SMARTernak-installed cattle as well as details about power consumption.

The Cattle Detail Page shows readings of scales related to cattle well-being and productivity, as well as battery status, such as capacity and voltage. These data is updated regularly upon new activities are detected from the cattle. Information about cattle location and events happening to the cattle is also shown in this page.

In addition to the web version, SMARTernak also has a dashboard in the form of iOS and Android apps, which cattle farmers can access on the go via the Internet.

SMARTernak Tracker and Health & Productivity Is Here to Revolutionize Indonesia’s Cattle Farming Industry

By | Livestock Farming, News, Solutions | No Comments

SMARTernak two variants: SMARTernak Tracking & SMARTernak Health & Productivity

Indonesia is having a dire problem in terms of beef production: the local beef production is less than 60% out of the needs. This is in juxtaposition with Indonesia’s relatively high position in FAO’s World Cattle Inventory ranking, with more than 16,5 million cattle that produces more than 500 tons of beef a year.

Despite this, the government of Indonesia maintains an optimistic outlook. President Joko Widodo is aiming for Indonesia to be self-sufficient in beef in the next nine to 10 years, saying that all preparations needed to achieve that are “on the right track”. The government pushes for an increase in cattle population.
With the increase of the number of cattle, a problem then arises: how does a cattle farmer manage a spike in livestock numbers with only a pair of hands? This is just one among many other problems that cattle farmers face.

And this is where technology comes into place. Specifically, a technology called PLF, or Precision Livestock Farming, a continuous, automated real-time monitoring of cattle production and reproduction, health and welfare, as well as environmental impact.

Introducing SMARTernak by DycodeX, a contribution to Indonesian government’s beef self-sufficiency programme. SMARTernak is the smartest PLF solution to revolutionize Indonesia’s cattle-farming industry. It cuts the hassle out of cattle-farmer’s lives by using an IoT-based system to make cattle-farmers’ lives easier and livestock healthier and more productive.

SMARTernak has two variants which cattle-farmers can pick according to the needs of their farms: SMARTernak Tracking and SMARTernak Health & Productivity. SMARTernak Tracking is optimized to accurately and periodically track cattle location and monitor their movement around the farm. SMARTernak Health & Productivity is optimized towards monitoring cattle health and general well-being as well as the environmental condition around the cattle.

Additional features for both SMARTernak Tracking and SMARTernak Health & Productivity include anti-theft system; covers wide range (with LoRa, 2G/3G network, or NB-IoT); cost-effective with low power consumption; compact, unobtrusive design; dashboard via web or smartphone.

SMARTernak only needs to be strapped on once, and it does all the hard work. SMARTernak periodically reads and sends data from the cattle which is then sent to the cloud for data digestion. Cattle farmers can then monitor the readings via the custom-built web and smartphone dashboards.

Ready to revolutionize your cattle-farm? We’re very happy to integrate SMARTernak to your existing cattle-farming workflow. Contact us at x@dycode.com for a demo.

SmarTernak Third Version Trial in Subang, West Java

By | Livestock Farming, Solutions | No Comments

One of DycodeX’s flagship product for precision farming, SmarTernak, has now entered the third trial phase. This trial process is needed to determine the compatibility of SmarTernak tools in different types of livestock. The last trial conducted by DycodeX team was on last April, in Padang Mengatas, West Sumatra. And on May 12, 2018, DycodeX team conducted the latest field trial.

This time, trial was conducted at a cattle farm in Cijambe subdistrict, Subang, West Java. The cows on this farm were of Bali Metal Cow type, which weighs approximately 350 – 800 kg. This type of cow is a challenge for the DycodeX team, because Balinese Cow are easily disturbed by the presence of new people. But once the sensor is installed properly, the cow’s activity is not disturbed.

DycodeX team successfully done the installation of LoRa Gateway with good pole material so it’s resistant to any kind of weather. The strap for the SmarTernak device was prepared in 2 types, so we could analyze the most convenient installation for the cattle. The mechanism of installing and discharging the SmarTernak device is now being upgraded to make it more practical and does not interfere with livestock activities.

This trial further enhances the stability and quality of the SmarTernak device. If your business is engaged in the livestock sector and requires a practical and comprehensive handling, you can contact us for more info.
