Umitron develops a smart fish body measurement system called UMITRON LENS
Using a portable camera paired with a mobile app, Lens automatically measures fish size underwater and all of the data is accessible in the cloud.
Umitron K. K. has developed a new service using AI and IoT technology - a smart fish body measurement system for aquaculture farmers called “UMITRON LENS®︎”. Using a portable camera paired with a mobile app, Lens automatically measures fish size underwater and all of the data is accessible in the cloud.
Being able to track fish during their growth cycles is an essential part of farm management.The current way of measuring fish growth involves sampling an adequate number of fish frequently, and this is not only a labour intensive operation for farmers, but can also cause stress to the fish, sometimes resulting in injuries or even death.
Lens utilizes small stereo cameras and artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically measure fish size in the cages and connects to the Internet to store data in the cloud. In this way, the process of checking fish growth is made much easier for farmers, helping them to reduce their workload, manage their operations more efficiently, and in turn increase their profits.
Umitron has been developing this system in Oita prefectures in Japan since 2018, focusing on improving the user experience on actual farming sites, gathering useful data sets from measurement operations and increasing the accuracy of the size estimations.
