What We Do

Engineering of on-line and handheld sensor systems for non-invasive detection of plant phenotypes.

Specialise in low-cost, low-power, networked electronics systems, edge-computing machine learning.

Technology based group partnering with Plant Science community to deliver tools and technologies for the sector.

  • Active multispectral crop canopy sensors (abiotic / biotic stresses / input & output traits)
  • Below soil / growth media elec. impedance imaging
  • Periodically modulated fluorescence sensing
  • Sentinel crop pathogenic spore detection
  • Molecularly Imprinted Polymer nutrient sensing
  • Distributed fibre optic chemical sensing
