TIBOT - TiOne Spoutnik (2016) - 3 stars
ROBOT FOR POULTRY FARMS
The presented product is a four-wheel drive autonomous assistance robot for the poultry
farmer in his daily tasks. It is equipped with a geo-localisation system that allows it to
follow, with precision, a programmed track within the breeding area.
Its tasks are to move the hens to increase their fertility and to educate them to go to
the laying boxes to limit the number of eggs that fall to the ground. These eggs are
currently downgraded which represents a significant loss of productivity for the breeder.
According to the needs, it can be equipped with various accessories, for example with
claws to level and aerate the litter, sensors for monitoring environmental data collection
such as temperature, humidity, pressure, luminosity, CO2 …, in order to guarantee animal
welfare. Finally, this robot allows remote monitoring of the breeding, and warns the
breeder directly on his smartphone in case of a non-corresponding parameter.
Point of view of the jury: this product marks the beginning of the robotization
Award-winner testimony: Since the Innov’Space award in 2016, TIBOT has seen important growth of its activity. We have finalized our prototype to result in the market-ready version. In 2017, TiOne became SPOUTNIC. He has been distributed in more than 15 countries.
We have continued our strategy of continuous improvement of our product thanks to the feedback of our customers. In 2018 we launched the customizing controller, which allows the user to adapt the sound and visual stimuli, program work schedules or adjust the maneuvring angles.
During SPACE 2019, a new version has been launched: SPOUTNIC NAV. Spoutnic NAV is dedicated to broilers. Its mission is twofold: to stimulate the movement of the birds and to aerate the litter. Spoutnic NAV is equipped with an indoor navigation system allowing it to move with precision according to a self-generated route or chosen by the breeder.
TIBOT Technologies continues to expand worldwide and is still working on innovation to improve the working conditions of the poultry farmers and their income, while improving animal wel-fare.
