Finnish software company is our customer that focuses on the agricultural sector and animal management solutions based on radio frequency identification (RFID) and Internet technologies.

The Customer decided to create a smart solution which would offer tools for livestock management and make it easier to identify and handle animals. The main function of the solution should be wireless collection of livestock data straight from the field. The solution was supposed to use RFID scanner and pidion device (palmtop) to transmit the information via Bluetooth. The Customer turned to Infigrid Solutions to develop an application that would help to organize effective integration between RFID scanner and pidion device (palmtop).

We developed the smart solution that allowed the Customer to get advantage of RFID recognition, wireless data transmission and integration.

To facilitate data gathering, the process was organized in the following way:

  • RFID tag (microchip) is attached to an animal’s ear
  • Farmers scan the tags by an RFID handheld scanner
  • The data is wirelessly transmitted to the pidion device
  • The solution supports simultaneous data collection and recording


Transmitted data contains the following parameters about the tracked animals:

  • Changes in weight and the location
  • Pedigree
  • Animal specific information
  • Treatment codes
  • Estimated birthing time
  • User management data
  • UI of the application also contains health database, official registry and robotic milking


We build this portal using below technologies:

  • C++
  • C#/.NET
  • Bluetooth API
  • WinAPI
  • COM
