Abstract: A new concept for on-line surveillance of animal transports is presented, comprising telemetry and wireless data communication. The concept has two major objectives: (1) to improve animal disease prevention and control and (2) to enable monitoring of animal welfare during transport. The system allows on-line collection on the transport lorry of data with respect to animal identification, body temperature and geographical position. Concept and prototype system are described. Performance tests on data collection and transmission showed the technical feasibility of the prototype system, both under laboratory and semi-practical conditions. Necessary improvements and future use of the system are discussed. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
