Super Resolution for Root Imaging

Abstract: High-resolution cameras have become very helpful for plant phenotyping by providing a mechanism for tasks such as target versus background discrimination, and the measurement and analysis of fine-above-ground plant attributes. However, the acquisition of high-resolution (HR) imagery of plant… Read More

Multi-Target Multiple Instance Learning for Hyperspectral Target Detection

Abstract: In remote sensing, it is often challenging to acquire or collect a large dataset that is accurately labeled. This difficulty is usually due to several issues, including but not limited to the study site’s spatial area and accessibility, errors… Read More

RhizoVision Crown Accepted to Plant Phenomics!

Machine Learning and Sensing Lab Alumni, Anand Seethepalli, and collaborators recently had a paper accepted to Plant Phenomics.  The article discusses an innovative platform to help collect consistent images of root crowns for phenotyping.  Check it out here! 

Peanut Maturity Classification using Hyperspectral Imagery

Abstract: Seed maturity in peanut ( Arachis hypogaea L.) determines economic return to a producer because of its impact on seed weight, and critically influences seed vigor and other quality characteristics. During seed development, the inner mesocarp layer of the… Read More

Classifying California plant species temporally using airborne hyperspectral imagery

Abstract: Accurate knowledge of seasonal and inter-annual distributions of plant species is required for many research and management agendas that track ecosystem health. Airborne imaging spectroscopy data have been used successfully to map plant species, but often only in a… Read More

Plant species’ spectral emissivity and temperature using the hyperspectral thermal emission spectrometer (HyTES) sensor

Abstract: The thermal domain (TIR; 2.5–15 μm) delivers unique measurements of plant characteristics that are not possible in other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. However, these TIR measurements have largely been restricted to laboratory leaf level or coarse spatial resolutions… Read More
