Since winning an Ag Tech IoT challenge in 2018 in Red Wing, Minnesota, Jack Kilian has been innovating on his Poultry Patrol invention with the help of some much-needed barn time for his chicken chasing robot. In this demo video, see how the four-wheeled machine navigates the inside of a poultry barn, and hear from a local Red Wing farmer about why Poultry Patrol has the potential to ease agricultural labor shortages.

“The robot is essentially just another IoT device that’s connected with a bunch of other sensors in the barn. Getting internet access at poultry barns has been a real challenge, but it is really the enabling factor to be able to build a robot out in a rural community quickly.” – Jack Kilian, inventor of Poultry Patrol
