Mechanical Design Engineer – Product Development

BioSort AS
Mechanical Design Engineer

iFarm, our product 

We seek talents to build iFarm, a system that utilizes computer vision, deep learning and biometrics to create health records for fish. Each fish is analyzed for possible disease symptoms and those who need treatment are sorted out. The result is increased fish welfare and sustainability, while lowering the production cost in fish farming. 

BioSort’s vision to move from group-based farming and operations, to individualized care and treatment has been widely adopted in the salmon farming industry. The project has been awarded Development Licenses by the Directorate of Fisheries, with funding secured for 5 years. So far, we have done a lot of concept work and will now start developing the technology from scratch. Do you want to be part of a multidisciplinary team and the journey to build a groundbreaking product? 

The core mechanical components are the iFarm housing and its sensor and sorting units. We also work on system design that involves the complete cage system. In addition, we simulate how the total system behaves in strong current, wind and waves. The product development will go though many interactions of prototypes that will be tested out in full scale.
