A handy imaging system for precision agriculture studies
Abstract:An inexpensive imaging system able to take various narrow-band images and placed on platforms of various heights can be very useful to many remote-sensing studies, particularly for researchers in precision agriculture areas. A handy imaging system, composed of an Electrim EDC-1000L monochrome camera, a Canon PHF6 1.4 lens, a set of Andover bandpass filters, and an Advantech PCA6751 single board computer, was built up and installed with corresponding self-developed application software. The system had been deployed on platforms such as a mobile high-lift crane and helicopter to acquire various narrow-band images. This simplified imaging system may help greatly in performing validation tests on many stress-identification indices and related algorithms derived from ground spectroradiometer measurements.
