We are independent and designing such research efforts, including software and hardware prototypes, consultatively. We have a prototype for rapid crop-ecology monitoring, morphology, water & soil chemistry analysis, optimised for field acquisition, followed by hardware-accelerated processing, to develop crop models on a cadastral scale.
Independent insight, expertise and opinion are invaluable for obtaining an-other perspective and adding depth to design-research efforts.
In other words, we have developed rapid monitoring protocols for farm field-scale standing crops and surface water analysis. Prototyped an ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer workflow for testing samples of soil and water. We intent to use very high resolution photography for crop morphology monitoring and, once sufficient data has been collected in controlled conditions and from the field, for crop modeling.
We have also studied full body scanning, draping, modeling, soft body collision simulations, and model locomotion.
If a specific problem related to our expertise needs a rethink, get in touch.
For instance, we had embarked on a coffee and cereal crop research project, from coffee crop health monitoring to market linkages.
