Students use information about an Automated Milking System (AMS) to design the layout of their own farm. Two-dimensional drawings are processed to make three-dimensional models of the layout.
This unit's purpose is to think about how to set up an automatic milking system by integrating knowledge of the farm technology with knowledge of cow behaviour.
At a more advanced level, students could construct a farm model using electronics.
