At Warren Farms, Mack and his father explored more innovative approaches to maximizing their yields. They started by upgrading their equipment for specific areas as well as flat-rating higher amounts of fertilizer.
As newer and more technology moves into agriculture through options like robotics, IoT, sensors, drones, and data analytics, some may feel they now have a full arsenal of tools at their disposal. However, augmented and virtual reality technologies should also be considered.
Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
