CREATE your IoT. The Connected Hennery

Estarreja, May 7th 2019

CREATE Your IoT Series

The Connected Hennery

The CREATE Your IoT Series is part of the Internet of Things (IoT) Large Scale Pilots of the European Union (LSPs) and it allows you to create your own IoT applications. It results from the cooperation between the LSPs and the Science Technology and Arts Initiative of the Digital Single Market of the European Union (STARTS).


In this instance of the series, The Connected Hennery, you learn how to make a very special hennery! It allows your chicken drive it around your field, clean it and get it ready for planting potatoes or what ever you fell like!


The Connected Hennery is an application of basic artificial intelligence in the field of Internet of Things. It analyses and predicts the movement of your chicken and moves along with them in your field! It is a new product for permaculture in-between industrial and free range chicken production.


“Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life”

Oscar Wilde


The Connected Hennery is artistically inspired also in the work of George Orwell. The author of books such as 1984 and Animal Farm also believed that the arts could strongly influence real life. The Connected Hennery revisits those concepts and represents a transitional technologically enabled model of socioeconomic organization.
