The GREENHOUSE SCANALYZER continuously monitors hundreds of plants under controlled conditions without human intervention. With options for both plant-to-sensor and sensor-to-plant automation, LemnaTec is the world’s leading supplier of automated indoor phenotyping systems.
Plants are transported by conveyers through a series of imaging cabinets, each cabinet hosting a different sensor, to capture several hundred data points per plant per run. LemnaTec’s innovative MULTIVIEW system rotates each plant to capture images from all sides, as well as from above. This results in comprehensive quantitative data about the physiological and genetic traits of plants and the parameters that control plant development.
GREENHOUSE SCANALYZER systems are built to suit our customers’ requirements using standardised modules. Some imaging cabinet examples are shown below.

LemnaGrid can create a topological skeleton from a shape. This allows us to split an imaged plant into its larger constituents: leaf/branch and stem.
In this post, we leverage a few skeleton graphs and morphological operations to analyse the leaf insertion angle, which is defined as the angle between the stem and branching leaf blade.
The ‘HSI to grey converter’ is a useful LemnaGrid tool to convert an RGB image into a more human intuitive color appearance system, i.e. the hue-saturation-intensity (HSI) model.
