LemnaTec Software for Phenotyping and Seed Testing
Translating images into application-specific information
The core of all LemnaTec phenotyping and seed testing systems is a comprehensive software package that enables operating the sensing equipment, storing the data and metadata, access to all records, and analysis of data. Hardware- and sensor- controls depend on the system and are specifically adapted for each product and also for customized solutions.
For all camera recordings, dedicated data processing is available. This ranges from systematic file administration over image processing to advanced machine learning algorithms. The image data processing and analysis is the key component of the phenotyping and seed testing procedures. Advanced image processing algorithms combined with machine learning tools ensure target-oriented analysis of the recorded image data. The analytical software translates digital image data into biologically relevant information.
Processing tools deliver sample-related data (examples):
|Sensor||Recorded parameters||Information to derive from parameters
|Visible light camera||Reflectance in visible light spectrum|
|Counts, dimensions, texture, colour; growth and developmental features, stress responses
(with corresponding excitation light and filter)
|Intensity and distribution of fluorescence light||Presence and distributions of fluorescencent pigments; stress and senescence
|Camera for chlorophyll fluorescence dynamics (Kautsky/PAM)||Photosystem II-related parameters||Photosynthetic capacity and activity; stress, pathogen responses
|NIR camera with 1450 nm filter||Water-content related NIR signal||Tissue moisture; water stress responses
|IR camera||Surface heat emission||Plant temperatures, transpiration
|Hyper-/multispectral camera||Spectrally resolved reflectance||Physiological parameters, vegetation indices
|Laser scanner||Point clouds||3D surface, height map, inclination map, convex hull; growth and developmental features
