Alfalfa Health Monitoring in Karaj City Suburbs
One third of the annual harvest worldwide is lost due to pests and fungal infestation. Unmanned aerial systems (UAV) make an important contribution to the technological revolution in agriculture. Our UAVs systems Equipped with several sensors and microcontrollers, NIR and multispectral cameras, GPS receivers and many more, allow you to determine how much sunlight the plants are absorbing and determine which plants are ready to be harvested and also monitor livestock and determine if they need more water, medical attention or if there is a hole in a pasture fence.
In this project was used for Visual inspection and geometric measurement and 3D modeling of alfalfa health monitoring from high resolution visible camera and was used from RotorMapper platform and Sony NEX-5T camera payload with focal length 35mm and resolution 4912 x 3264. Sensor Specifications and flight conditions is described in the following table:
The project was imaging in the history 24 November 2016 in Mahdasht (Karaj City suburbs). Mahdasht is a city in the Central District of Karaj County, Alborz Province, Iran. Darab’s range of latitude and longitude is [35˚ 44' 12.9599"N, 35˚ 44' 19.8834" N], [50˚ 48' 18.9200"E, 50˚ 48' 26.1722"E] Respectively.
In this project also was used for spectral inspection of alfalfa health monitoring from multispectral camera optimized and was used from RotorMapper platform and MicaSense RedEdge™ camera. Sensor Specifications is described in the following table:
