SmartSense™: a major breakthrough in developing the hatchery of the future

Imagine a future in which connected, autonomous incubators effortlessly hatch the highest number of best-quality chicks. Royal Pas Reform brings that scenario a significant step closer with SmartSense™ adaptive embryonic incubation – a new series of fully connected, data-driven incubators that reliably ‘sense’ the changing needs of the growing embryo.

Besides using pre-determined incubation programs for day-old chicks, SmartSense™ also evaluates and meets the current requirements of the embryo in each specific fan tower zone. We call this ‘Adaptive Embryonic Incubation™’ (AEI™).

SmartSense’s™ industry leading, precise climate control – based on air temperature, relative humidity and CO2, – now has a next generation series of intelligent, high-accuracy sensors in the SmartSense™ trolley, which constantly and non-invasively measure eggshell temperature, weight loss and heart rate (available soon) in real time. The incubator thus automatically adapts the environmental conditions to the actual needs of the growing embryo, further optimizing uniformity and maximizing post-hatch performance.

The full SmartSense™ incubation series, which will be officially launched at IPPE 2022, comprises the SmartSense™ setter and SmartSense™ hatcher, combined with the SmartSense™ trolley, SmartSense™ interface and SmartCenterPro™ hatchery management system.

We are delighted to invite you to visit us at IPPE 2022 in Hall B, booth 3839, for a detailed introduction to the SmartSense™ incubation system.
