e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

A wireless floating base sensor network for physiological responses of livestock


This article presents a wireless sensor network prototype to monitor physiological responses of livestock. As an example application the bovine brain electrical activity was monitored. The system is a novel low cost wireless communication protocol named Wireless Floating Base Sensor Network (FBSN) protocol. The basic equipment consists of two modules, one positioned at the animal (animal's module) and the other in an observation station (base module). The first one measures physiological responses from digital sensors, digitalizes data, and transmits it to the base module. The base module in turn, using an FBSN protocol, controls data collection from different animal modules and stores the data. The equipment developed and the FBSN protocol were able to monitor bovine brain electrical activity in six free moving animals for a period of 3 days. The system was designed with the ability to monitor any number of animals for a period that depends on physiological measurement and battery lifetime. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
