State of the art features:
Innovative sound sensors
Humidity and temperature sensors
A robust algorithm focused on respiratory health farm surveillance
- Robust trained algorithm with more than 350 years of barn recorded sound data.
- Validation from barns all over the world.
- High sensitivity and speciﬁcity detecting early symptoms based on labeled cough events.
- High precision rate.
- Continuous learning over time with increased sample size: SoundTalks® improves with every cough.
Easy installation and user-friendly interface
During the products development our engineers put high emphasis on user-friendliness. It is a “plug-and-play” system with uncomplicated hardware that uses color to indicate when it is working properly or not.
Durability under field conditions
The barn environment can be harsh on many types of equipment, so our engineers had this in mind during the hardware design phase. The hardware has been tested for durability under field conditions.
Proactive health and performance control
Some producers who thought they were respiratory disease-free were surprised to find that they had outbreaks detected by SoundTalks®, which went undetected before. Thankfully, it was possible for the farms to implement control programs (such as vaccinations) to improve their disease status.
SoundTalks® is there to help you
A good barn employee knows their animals, and, even with a SoundTalks® system in place, it is important to walk through your barns looking for other diseases and problems requiring your attention. Think of SoundTalks® as your assistant, being there when you can’t be, helping you focus your time on problems that need your attention most.
Machines don’t have human subjectivity when performing analysis. As a producer, your decisions will benefit from a higher sensitivity, objectivity and accuracy provided by SoundTalks®.
It means judicious antibiotic use5
Treatment measures and costs are always an important concern. Earlier disease detection might enable earlier treatment; and earlier treatment may mean less medication usage5 and better outcomes as opposed to treating disease late in its course when some animals are in a chronic state.
