I would like to collect data on small plants in the greenhouse and correlate that to later plant phenotype in the field. This data would be use to build a model for early elimination of plants from the production process that are unlikely to have the desired phenotype. What type of system would be used to do this?
Greg, Are you hoping to image a large area at one time or individual plants? We might have a device that would work for individual plants. If that is what you are looking for please contact me.
I am looking for a low cost solution to sort golf balls by make and model. We intend to use OCR as part of this solution. Since most ball manufacturers use alpha/numeric model numbers and logos. The challenge is getting the right orientation of text and logo for reading. Is it possible to read in multiple orientation?
Chris, Depending on what you mean by "low cost" a solution is to drop the balls through the air and image the entire surface at on time with multiple cameras. There are systems that will then stitch the image together so you can identify each ball.
