The study evaluated technologies for automatically counting live sheep as they are loaded on and off ships. The technologies investigated included machine vision, radio frequency tags, and races capable of counting singular sheep mechanically. An automated system must be accurate, cost-effective and efficient. The report found a mechanical system to be the most accurate and affordable option to be further developed, tested and trailed.
