Subir Biswas provides electrical and computer engineering expertise in egg industry project

 February 9, 2010

Subir Biswas, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, is working with a team of animal science researchers to explore the use of new wireless technology to determine its effectiveness in monitoring the welfare of egg-laying chickens.

With a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the researchers will test wearable sensors that will monitor how hens use space and resources in non-cage environments.
