Automated Visual Yield Estimation system for grapes. This system developed at Carnegie Mellon University uses high resolution stereo camera images and algorithms to to assess grape yield.
> Image acquisition rate:… 5Hz
> Data capture rate: 5Tb per 100 acres
> Vehicle velocity: 4 mph
Over 100,000 images can be captured and analyzed in 24 hours, detecting immature green fruit over green foliage, with the yield measurement being fruit count/ metre.
Imagine when this type of technology develops further – possibility of mounting to a crop sprayer and using to assess wheat yield prior to harvest?!
