In automatic phenotyping systems, users can schedule operation of the system and trigger measurements with the mounted sensors. Any automated hardware can operate in a time-scheduled mode for repeated programmed actions such as moving the sensing equipment to defined places and start camera recording. Thus, time- and space- resolved experiment planning is enabled.
All settings and recordings are stored in a central database. These data can be accessed via a dedicated interface that allows data retrieving. Retrieved data can be processed with the provided data analysis tools. The output of the analyses is corresponding to the capabilities of the cameras used for the recording. The analysis tools provide a large set of drag-and-drop functions for image processing that enable users to establish customized analysis procedures. In addition, case-specific analyses can be ordered from LemnaTec that allow one-click analyses of standard procedures, such as germination testing.
The analysis tools include machine learning and thereby give access to advanced classification even in complex cases. All processing results are stored in the database, together with the original data and metadata.
