The Eye uses advanced computer vision algorithms to estimate the Leaf Area Index (LAI) and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), monioring crops through time. The imagery technique is non-destructive. All data is pushed to the cloud and displayed on the CoolFarm Eye dashboard to provide sense of plant growth rate/cycles and potential nutrients unbalances during the growing season.
Using the Eye, growers can make wiser and straight forward decisions over the fertigation demands of their crops to achieve the best results.
The Eye comes equipped with an anti-fog lens with different angles of vision, allowing it to be installed in vertical farming warehouses or conventional greenhouses.
In this topology, the camera will generally be 20-50cm vertically above from and parallel the growing table. For this case, the Eye comes equipped with a Fisheye lens with a 182º field of View.
In this topology, the camera will generally by 2-3.5m vertically above from and parallel to the growing table, depending on its size. For this case, the Eye comes equipped with a wide-angle lens with a 74º field of view.
CoolFarm have created a completely intuitive dashboard that allows us to have quick and easy access to all the data generated on our farm, which alongside the CoolFarm Eye allows us to monitor the health and growth rate of our plants even when we aren't on the farm.
