LIVEQuest project is supported by China–UK research and innovation bridges competition.
Worldwide demand for meat and animal products is set to increase by 40% over the next decade; China’s total meat production has quadrupled over the last 20 years due to rising demand from a rapidly growing population. However, environmental/public health issues are becoming more prominent in China (similar to other emerging economies), and sustainable intensification of livestock agriculture is a key concern of Chinese policy-makers stakeholders.
LIVEQuest aims to build an innovative, cost-effective, self-contained wearable IoT device, a local processing and control system, and a global cloud-based big data decision support and response platform for precision livestock agriculture in China.
