Hyperspectral Imaging In Agriculture

2021-03-04T15:26:51-05:00

Hyperspectral technology can capture the continuous electromagnetic spectrum of color and light through a lens and split it into different spectral lengths using a dispersive element such as a prism or a diffraction grating. While human eyes contain only three types of colour receptors (red, [...]

Hyperspectral Inspection Overview

2021-05-24T11:06:20-04:00

Hyperspectral imaging is a new analytical technique wherein multiple images for the same spatial area are collected in different wavelengths. Unlike our own eyes that contain only three types of colour receptors (red, green and blue), hyperspectral imaging divides the electromagnetic spectrum into many more [...]

Robotic Farming: The Future Is Here

2020-10-28T08:40:09-04:00

Robotic farming is here and it’s showing up in small pockets of the world. In the not-too-distant future, our fields could all be tilled, sown, tended and harvested entirely by fleets of co-operating autonomous machines by land and air.  They will be working both day and night. […]
