Greenhouse Sensors and Machine Vision Cameras

Plant Growth

New sensors and machine vision technologies are allowing growers to get real-time and historic playback on their crops.

Determine what parameters you need to adjust, plan your cultivation and packaging schedule and make fine tune adjustments to for different growing experiments.

Luna machine vision

Luna Camera

Sensor: Camera
Manufacturer: iUNU
Overview: Using a rail-mounted camera system that captures close up high definition images in combination with in-canopy sensors the Luna system helps growers track the growing process of their entire operation.

Planteye

PlantEye F500

Sensor: 3d and Multi-spectral imaging
Manufacturer: Phenospex
Overview: The PlantEye combines an overlay 3D and multi-spectral information to give details on plant height, 3D leaf area, projected leaf area, digital biomass, leaf inclination, leaf area index, light penetration depth, and leaf coverage.

Growing Conditions

From lighting conditions to climate parameters like temperature and humidity these greenhouse sensors play an important role in automating your greenhouse operation.

smartPAR

smartPAR Light Sensor
