CAMERAS AND SENSORS
Rothamsted’s Field Scanalyzer is equipped with the most complete high-resolution sensor array that may be accurately positioned in three dimensions and mounted on fixed rails. The platform facilitates the continual and high-throughput monitoring of performance and health of field grown crops.
Employed sensors comprise of high-resolution visible, chlorophyll fluorescence and thermal infrared cameras, two hyperspectral imagers, and dual 3D laser scanners. The sensor array facilitates specific growth measurements and identification of key growth stages with dense temporal and spectral resolution. Together, this platform produces a detailed description of canopy development and health across the crops entire lifecycle, with a high-degree of accuracy and reproducibility.
