Gigavision and chamber camera driver software
PhenoCapture - Computer vision
Hardware at Scale
Mountain top or tower
Chamber and Greenhouse
4 Heliospectra L4A 500W Programmable LED Light Source
4 RGB-NIR IP Cameras
Real time imaging of plant growth and development in climate controlled plant growth chambers
2 sets of paired RGB/NIR cameras will be installed in 4 chambers for compound stereo imaging.
Chamber A and B will have fixed focus and zoom for rosette plants
Chamber C and D will have autofocus and zoom to capture vertical plant growth
Fluorescence spectroscopy will be possible from each camera configuration via illumination from each unique LED light band. The signature reflectance spectra will reveal the sub tissues (leaf hairs, etc) and developmental dynamics of specific compounds including photoprotective, flavanoids, anthocyanins, carotenoids, and xanthophylls. Leaf transpiration is recorded with IR cameras, and the hyperspectral camera will probe into novel areas of plant physiology, development, and genetics.
