Umitron releases AI tool for shrimp farmers

July 6, 2022  By RAStech staff

Umitron PTE Ltd., a Singapore-based technology company, has launched an artificial intelligence (AI) enabled analytics tool that can help shrimp farmers track multiple biological conditions and other factors in real time.

The Umitron Eagle software is designed for shrimp producers to optimize their feeding protocols easily and automatically using real-time analytics. The software can also assess shrimp production conditions in real-time using customized AI algorithms. These include but are not limited to real-time appetite analysis, health and growth conditions, and biomass.

“While solutions exist to remotely control feeding (via timer-based automatic feeders) and monitor environmental parameters using sensors, they are currently unable to analyse the real-time conditions of the shrimp,” a press release from the company said. 


“This is further exacerbated by the fact that most farming environments have poor visibility (i.e. high turbidity) and that digital transformations have been slower and more limited for shrimp than their fish counterparts.”
