Title (EN) ARRANGEMENT AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE POSITION OF AN ANIMAL
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR DÉTERMINER LA POSITION D'UN ANIMAL
Abstract:
(EN) An arrangement, which is provided for determining the position of an animal, comprises a three-dimensional camera directed towards the animal and provided to record a three-dimensional image of the animal, and image processing means provided for detecting the animal and determining its position in at least one spatial dimension based on the three-dimensional image of the animal. The image processing means is provided to form a three-dimensional surface representation of a portion of the animal from the three-dimensional image of the animal, to analyze the surface of the three-dimensional surface representation, and to determine the position of the animal based on the analysis of the surface of the three-dimensional surface representation.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système servant à déterminer la position d'un animal et comprenant une caméra tridimensionnelle dirigée vers l'animal et servant à enregistrer une image tridimensionnelle de l'animal, et un moyen de traitement d'images servant à détecter l'animal et à déterminer sa position dans au moins une dimension spatiale sur la base de l'image tridimensionnelle de l'animal. Le moyen de traitement d'images permet de former une représentation surfacique tridimensionnelle d'une partie de l'animal à partir de l'image tridimensionnelle de l'animal, d'analyser la surface de la représentation surfacique tridimensionnelle et de déterminer la position de l'animal sur la base de l'analyse de la surface de la représentation surfacique tridimensionnelle.
