Presentation of OMELETTE to Swiss officials

May 21st 2024, Switzerland

On May 21st 2024, the commission advising the Swiss Federal government for the licensing of barn equipment held their biannual meeting.

Sabine Gebhardt-Henrich from the University of Bern presented a project about toe pecking in laying hens. One of the two work packages includes the collaborative effort between the University of Bern and KU Leuven to automatize the detection of toe-pecking hens on video within OMELETTE. OMELETTE and the funding of Interreg was acknowledged. There was a lot of interest in that part of the project, and the audience asked whether the automatization of toe-pecking from videos had started. The answer was that videos are already recording, and the work has started.
