Using drones equipped with sensors and other imaging technologies, ABE is collaborating with scientists at Yuma and Maricopa Ag Centers to develop simple and near-real time tools to assist farmers control and manage field crops. Integrating cameras and sensors into drones, we capture spectrums of light invisible to the naked eye and measure crop development with higher precision and sub-millimeter resolution.
Using global remote sensing from NASA satellites, and a variety of other platforms and sources, VIP Lab analyzes vegetation in a global context then extrapolates to the regional levels. This allows scientists, engineers, and experts to investigate the interconnectivity of vegetation, food availability, water scarcity, and climate change.
