In addition to autonomous robots and manual-driven sensors cabinets, Robopec has just released a minimalist acquisition system for pedestrian use. Designed by the researchers at INRA in Avignon, this system results from several iterations of collaborative engineering. The first series of 5 copies is going to be delivered to various labs partnering in the LITERAL program.
Called Phenoman, this system is implemented at the end of a pole, while the energy is provided by a battery housed in a backpack. Each system is equipped with an Airphen multispectral camera and 3 Sony high-resolution cameras. An RTK GPS also provides centimetric geolocation of shots, and a tablet hosts the software for controlling and monitoring measurements.
The latest addition to a large family, Phenoman is destined for a great success as a new series of 10 copies, even more compact, has just been ordered.
