The “Cabras 4.0” remote goat herd project is an original and innovative initiative, based on launching a virtual device that allows remote control of a herd, from a computer screen or portable device. The objective of the project is to develop an autonomous team for the telematic control, monitoring and protection of a herd of goats without human intervention that can be applied to multiple herds.
