Ahora el mayor peligro es que el jabalí infectado puede volver a sembrar el pánico y finalmente poner de rodillas un sector económico de  importancia para regiones enteras, como la de la cría de cerdos, que está pasando por gran un período de crisis que se arrastra desde hace mucho tiempo.

We engage with the X Modelling Week at the Faculty of CC. Mathematics of the UCM from 13 to 17 June 2016.

X Modelling Week

The proposed problem consists on developing a video analysis system in real time for early detection of diseases in farms. For this work, 8 animals were continuously recorded for 4 weeks. During this period, the animals developed African swine fever (ASF) and we could notice clear signs of fatigue (which implies a motion reduction). The system perform image processing techniques based on mathematical-statistical techniques in order to identify and classify animal behaviour in their various states: eating, playing, sleeping or resting. Furthermore, the system detects abnormal behavior when the infection reaches its virulence moments for alert triggering.
