Designing and Building Onboard Capture Screen Cattle Artificial Insemination Device
In Indonesia, the decline of the calf birth rate affects the cattle population. One way to increase the population and birth rate of cattle can be done through artificial insemination. However, using artificial insemination devices does not guarantee the accuracy of the cattle’s heat period. An artificial insemination device integrated with an endoscopic camera combined with photo, video, and temperature capture methods is needed to carry out the stages before and after the placement of sperm semen on the ovaries, namely the heat period and pregnancy detection. The design of this artificial insemination device, known as the IB-G2, is emphasized so that insemination officers are more focused by positioning the screen on board. The IB-G2 was successfully made with a 1.4 GHz processor specification, 1GB memory, 3.5" 320x480 Dots color touch screen LCD, 640x680p camera, and a temperature sensor range -55 to 125 °C. The IB-G2 is expected to contribute to helping inseminators in particular and farmers in general to catalyze the cattle population increase.
