Pheno-Inspect – Modern Computer Vision for Cloud-Based Plant Inspection
What about the growth of the plants? Where do stress symptoms appear? Which weeds or plant diseases are present in the field? Which varieties prove themselves under certain environmental or cultivation conditions? Anyone who breeds varieties or cultivates plants has to collect data at great expense and evaluate them concerning such questions. In plant breeding, phenotyping is still a very complex process. Experts measure the appearance – the phenotype – of plants.
Pheno-Inspect develops state-of-the-art image processing software optimized for the agricultural sector for the fully automatic evaluation of these essential parameters. We develop „digital experts“ based on artificial intelligence. Our algorithms are not limited to specific crops but learn with every new image. We adapt efficiently to individual problems and the local characteristics of our customers.
We offer our evaluation conveniently as a cloud service or develop dedicate software for being deployed in your real-time applications. Our users simply load the data into our „Plant-Analyzer“, a web-based evaluation platform for image data. Drones, for example, can be used for the stocktaking. These enable flexible and large-scale surveying of fields and trial areas. With a resolution down to the sub-millimeter range, the cameras do not miss a blade of grass. With high-precision GPS, each individual plant is mapped with centimeter accuracy. But we also evaluate image data from other sources, such as smartphone cameras or special (mobile) cameras. Whether RGB, multispectral, or hyperspectral does not matter.
