A sophisticated surveillance system of cameras, sensors and microphones is installed on the poultry farm in the Dutch Kessel: Welcome to a "smart farm" - a digitized farm. The hens are monitored here down to the smallest detail. European researchers have developed the devices to increase the welfare of the animals - and at the same time the productivity of the farm. About 20,000 chickens are kept here. Digital technology tracks every movement - and immediately sends an alarm signal to the farmer when an animal behaves conspicuously.
