Latest ESA Research Leads to Better Cameras for Precision Agriculture

Lars Wecks for Trend in Tech:  A new camera from Cubert, working in collaboration with VITO Remote Sensing and imec, based on research from the European Space Agency, is bringing high-resolution details to precision farming.
Precision farming relies on *hyperspectral imaging to gather additional information about crops for making the best decisions on resource and field management. The ButterflEYES LS from Cubert can now provide these images with in focus details as minute as five centimeters. Also, since it weighs only 400g, it is easily carried by a drone over large and varied land masses.
Hyperspectral imaging can capture visual information in a variety of wavelengths, including near-infrared. Because of this added feature, a hyperspectral camera allows its users to see processes or problems that might otherwise be invisible to in normal imaging.  Full Article:

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
