Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure generally relates to the field of farming and more specifically the disclosure relates to a method for determining a health condition of an animal 1. The method comprises capturing S1 a thermographic image of at least one portion of the animal and capturing S2 a visible light image of the at least one portion of the animal, wherein the visible light image corresponds to the thermographic image. The method further comprises determining S3 at least one surface property of the at least one portion of the animal based on the visible light image, adjusting S4 the thermographic image to compensate for impact of the determined at least one surface property and determining S5 the health condition of the animal based on the adjusted thermographic image. The disclosure also related to a corresponding control unit 40, computer program and computer program product.

La présente invention concerne d'une manière générale le domaine de l'agriculture et, plus particulièrement, un procédé de détermination d'un état de santé d'un animal 1. Le procédé comprend S1 la capture d'une image thermographique d'au moins une partie de l'animal et S2 la capture d'une image de lumière visible de ladite au moins une partie de l'animal, l'image de lumière visible correspondant à l'image thermographique. Le procédé comprend en outre S3 la détermination d'au moins une propriété de surface de ladite au moins une partie de l'animal sur la base de l'image de lumière visible, S4 l'ajustement de l'image thermographique pour compenser l'impact de ladite au moins une propriété de surface déterminée et S5 la détermination de l'état de santé de l'animal sur la base de l'image thermographique ajustée. L'invention concerne également une unité de commande 40, un programme d'ordinateur et un produit programme d'ordinateur correspondants.
