New Braunfels, Texas

Apart of the Sandhills Robotics’ mission is to provide value-added Business Intelligence solutions for agriculture and wildlife management. Recently, a large cattle ranch out of New Braunfels, TX approached NC State seeking an aerial solution to find specific cattle and identify females in heat to boost their breeding program. Radio frequency identification tags (RFID) on the cows can be identified using a drone and GPS. Coordinates of their positions can be sent back to the hands on the ground. Together with infrared cameras which can measure the body heat of the female bovines, Sandhills Robotics is working to help ranchers more effectively manage their herd by pin-pointing position and opportunity.
