Mobile camera scanner for collecting pig weights

OptiScan is a portable digital camera used to determine pig weights on the spot anywhere and anytime, eliminating the need to sort and herd pigs onto a scale. With a push of a button, the handheld camera records top view images of pigs and displays them on a connected tablet along with the corresponding animal weight. The process is fast, easy and cost-effective. OptiScan is a great tool that replaces time consuming direct pig weighing and often inaccurate human observation methods.
