The AIMHiGH project is an experiment that was conducted under the FF4EuroHPC initiative to improve the efficiency and performance of high-performance computing in Europe. The main goal of the engagement was to understand their business challenges and to present an IoT-based poultry farm management solution, supported by a set of sensors for environmental monitoring. The use of HPC and deep learning AI were used to create prediction models that can be deployed on edge devices equipped with camera sensors for use in IoT/AI solutions in the poultry sector.
Several organizations collaborated on the AIMHiGH project. The end-users were the Radinović Company and Meso-Promet Franca, while the University of Donja Gorica, which is part of the NCC Montenegro, provided domain expertise. The ISV for the project was DunavNET, and DigitalSmart provided HPC and AI expertise.
The AIMHiGH project resulted in a new digital farming solution that combines cameras, edge computing, and an IoT platform. The system helped to reduce manual labor costs and chicken mortality rates by 10% and detect disease or abnormalities quicker than before. The technology developed in this project has become a part of the poultryNET platform offering, and there is an opportunity to sell such components to third-party vendors active in the market of smart agriculture solutions.
Overall, the AIMHiGH project demonstrated the potential of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and high-performance computing to develop innovative solutions for the agriculture industry. The project also showcased the benefits of collaboration among different organizations with expertise in various fields.

poultryNET is a cloud-based solution for the digital transformation of poultry farms. It provides real-time observations of the parameters of interest and digitized domain expertise enabling farmers to manage all steps in the broiler production while reducing negative environmental impact and respecting animal wellbeing.
The main features provide complete 24/7 insight into poultry barns from monitoring environmental parameters, daily weight and consumed feed and water, to a biosafety guide, costs/revenue calculator and digital assistant in problem solving. Using the poultryNET the environmental conditions, as well as food and water consumption and prepared feed mixture, could be tailored to specific animal needs and production goals. Increased of energy, optimized food and water consumption and better meat quality are the main benefits.
The poultryNET solution is applicable for broiler farms, parental flocks and laying hens.
Four years ago, we started cooperation with Agroprodukt Šinković company by implementing our digital farming platform for poultry production on their farm. The collaboration continued within the DEMETER project by expanding solutions and setting a basis for a transparent supply chain.
The Agroprodukt Šinković is a Serbian company focused on raising laying hens, parental flocks and day-old chicks for over 20 years. Their annual production is more than 10 million day-old chickens.

Three years ago, we started cooperation with Agroprodukt Šinković company by implementing our agroNET platform for poultry production on their farm. The cooperation continued within the DEMETER project by expanding solution and setting a basis for a transparent supply chain.
agroNET platform modules for optimizing poultry breeding, both parental flocks and laying hens have been deployed in Agroprodukt’s poultry barns in order to provide real-time insight into environmental conditions and enable animal welfare.
The Agroprodukt Šinković is a Serbian company that has been focused on raising laying hens, parental flocks and day-old chicks for more than 20 years. Their annual production is more than 10 million day-old chickens.
Laslo Šinković, the owner of the company, said: “We are using the agroNET platform for poultry production as a tool for optimization of raising laying hens and parental flocks. The platform brings us 24/7 insight into poultry barns without the need for on-site inspection a few times per day. This allows us to react on time and provide optimal environmental conditions for raising poultry. Additionally, the possibility of comparing our results with technology parameters is very helpful in feed management.”
Future steps will lead to wider cooperation: “We are planning to expand digitization on other parts of our production to be able to optimize inputs and provide transparency of all relevant parameters for our partners, different stakeholders” – explains Laslo.
