Multispectral cameras capture spectral signatures much like a thermometer measures the temperature of the human body. Changes in plant reflectance indicate stress, but additional information is required to identify the cause.
Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
