Analysis tools for biomass crops developed

December 22, 2015  - By 0 Comments

Genera Energy and PrecisionHawk have partnered to develop new analysis algorithms specific to improving the efficiency and quality of sustainable biomass crop production and distribution.

The algorithms will convert raw aerial imagery collected by UAVs and satellites into an actionable report for biomass crop farmers.

The tools will be publicly licensed for use in the DataMapper software platform.

Within the DataMapper software platform, Genera will license the completed tools in the Algorithm Marketplace, DataMapper’s library of sophisticated algorithms for data analysis.

The store automatically interprets data collected from a drone’s geographic information system during flight.

The Genera algorithms will add to the currently available lineup of algorithms serving the agricultural industry such as assessing plant characteristics, identifying pests, and monitoring disease pressures.

The first group of research tools to be developed under the new partnership will focus on lignocellulosic crops, core to Genera’s expertise.
