Modern agriculture is an industry that relies on many sophisticated sensor technologies and spectroscopy is one of these. The key benefits of spectral sensors are that they offer instant feedback in the field or directly in the process line at the factory. Modern spectrometers are furthermore compact and robust allowing mounting directly on a tractor or harvestor for instance.
A multi-spectral sensor detects the spectral content of the light that is either reflected off or transmitted through a sample material. In our case, the sample can be the leaves of the plants as an example. The multi-spectral sensor will measure how much of each wavelength of the light is reflected or absorbed. And based on these measurements characteristics of the sample can be determined.
We hope you will be inspired from our pages below and learn how spectral sensors might benefit your area of expertise.
