Field Scanner

This section describes the sensors deployed on the Lemnatec Field Scanner in Maricopa, AZ. Device and sensor information, including technical specifications, calibration data, and calibration targets are stored in the TERRA REF Clowder database.

The Maricopa field site is located at the the University of Arizona Maricopa Agricultural Center and USDA Arid Land Research Station in Maricopa, Arizona. At this site, we have deployed the following phenotyping platforms.

The Lemnatec Scanalyzer Field System is the largest field crop analytics robot in the world. This high-throughput phenotyping field-scanning robot has a 30-ton steel gantry that autonomously moves along two 200-meter steel rails while continuously imaging the crops growing below it with a diverse array of cameras and sensors.

Twelve sensors are attached to the gantry system. Detailed information for each sensor including name, variable measured, and field of view are described in the table below, with links to more detailed specifications.
