YOUR FIELD CIRCUMSTANCES, CROP CONDITION AND FRUIT GROWTH UNDER FULL REMOTE CONTROL – USING STATE OF THE ART OPTICAL CAMERA SYSTEM SUPPORTED WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SOFTWARE
REMOTE FIELD, CROP AND FRUIT MONITORING – EXAMPLES
With the inspiration of helping the farmer to grow his crop in the optimal and most healthy way, Pessl Instruments GmbH, developed optical high-resolution camera system, together with a computer vision software which is able to recognize objects from the photo (first solution is made for apple fruit recognition). Optical high-resolution camera system is installed in the field to remotely monitor field, crop or fruit. All of the photos and data from computer vision software is displayed online, on a web portal called ng.fieldclimate.com.
REMOTE MONITORING OF FIELD, CROP AND FRUIT SAVES TIME AND OPTIMIZES USE OF RESOURCES – PRODUCING MORE WITH LESS
The CropVIEW®, is a camera system with integrated electronics (camera, modem, power source with solar panel). It can be installed wherever in the field needed. In the field, the device is self-sufficient, as it is powered by a solar panel and a battery. 10 MP camera takes high-resolution pictures of your field, crop or fruit. Images are sent via mobile network to the FieldClimate.com platform where they are analyzed with automatic detection of fruits (for apples only). The results are then visible on web or mobile devices. As a result, we see a photo with recognized fruits (apple only) as well as measurements of fruit diameters (apple only). Control is real-time and the collected data can be used for further analysis.
HOW MANY STATIONS TO INSTALL?
When installing CropVIEW® station you need to take into consideration the sun position – make sure that your device is not facing directly to the sun, at the time that photos are taken. How many stations will be installed, needs to be decided by the local personnel on farm. It can be one device per growing site, or also more devices per growing site (e.g.: if there are different varieties at the growing site and monitoring of all is wanted).

OTHER USE CASES
CropView can also be used in livestock farms facilitating the improvement of the breeding process and ensuring the well-being of the animals.
The high-resolution camera supported with AI closely monitors the growth of animals, their weight gain or loss, and can detect injured animals or animals in distress.
