Industrial Robots Embedded With ITTIA DB Improve Animal Healthcare

September 14, 2011 — Bellevue, WA — When data management for industrial automation systems and robotics rely highly on reliability, flexibility and scalability, the slightest error from the systems can cause major concern. To keep up with industrial automation standards and the increasing demands of their customers, leading global solutions provider Wasserbauer selected ITTIA DB SQL for their state-of-the-art industrial automation solutions that significantly increase yields and reduce inputs through programmable animal feeding strategies.

Wasserbauer is Europe's leading specialist in industrial automation for manufacturing robotics-feeding systems and their robotics automatically match animal feeding patterns and continuously manage the concentration of feed to stimulate the appetite of animals. The Wasserbauer industrial systems are programmed to deliver a specific amount of nutrition to a designated feeding area and encourage animals to eat a healthier diet. Wasserbauer has been recognized as the leading specialist in feedings systems for cattle and their embedded systems have dramatically improved animal health care.

ITTIA DB SQL is a lightweight embedded software library that is designed to function within one or more devices. Though battery backup is employed by these robotic devices, ITTIA DB SQL also protects critical data in case of a sudden power failure. With ITTIA DB SQL, Wasserbauer is able to manage the database features to exactly meet their industrial automation robot requirements. ITTIA DB SQL supports both low-level functions for accessing data without SQL or with SQL for using queries. Shared access allows Wasserbauer to scale the database to specific hardware without changing their application code.

ITTIA DB SQL protects, organizes, and shares data between the many tasks and devices that make up a complete system, and offers the best conditions for rational software development with the highest standards of quality for Wasserbauer systems. As a result, animals cared for by Wasserbauer feeding systems experience the most efficient milk yields, weight control, and better health.

"The fact that ITTIA customers continue to shine prominently in various markets is a testament to our expertise in helping organizations to build world class systems," said Sasan Montaseri, ITTIA President. "The demand for embedded data management software on industrial automation systems and devices is growing, and there is a clear need for development of advanced embedded database software to deliver new features on fixed hardware specifications at low-cost."
