WELCOME TO Y-WARE
Innovating towards the Future
WHO WE ARE
The Y-Ware project partnership is developing an IoT (Internet of Things) based data collection solution, with sensors specifically developed for young-stock (14 weeks) and a Decision Dashboard backed up by comprehensive data analytics, driven by Vet science-informed algorithms, allowing Farmers, Vets, Retailers (and ultimately the consumer), with accurate Animal Health and Welfare assessments to reduce and eliminate the cause of the current losses.
This project, which is funded by Innovate UK for 3-years (2017-2020) addresses the Innovate UK priority area ‘increase yield, quality and sustainability in agriculture and food production’ by focusing on advanced and precision engineering, fighting antimicrobial resistance and individualised nutrition and healthcare for dairy and beef young-stock.
A BIT ABOUT US
The consortium comprises of PrognostiX UK Limited (contact: Keith Evans), University of Nottingham (contact: Jasmeet Kaler) and BT (Praveen Bissonauth); specialists in engineering technology, software development, Veterinary epidemiology, cloud computing and data analytics with proven track records in their subject areas and success across previous projects from which acquired knowledge and methodologies will be applied to Y-Ware.
