Digital Farming with Raspberry Pi #raspberrypi #piday @Rapberry_Pi

The Digital Farming revolution continues, with Robotics & Automation News reporting that

…a team of researchers has integrated Raspberry Pi into what’s called an “automated field phenomics” system, or what could be thought of as a sophisticated scarecrow. And the team claims their system will cost a fraction of the phenotyping solutions currently on the market.

Scientists from The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) and the John Innes Centre (JIC) have received a grant from Norwich Research Park Translational fund for CropQuant, a computerised infield crop monitoring workstation for precision agriculture. 

CropQuant uses Raspberry Pi computers to control infield cameras to capture and process crop growth images. In-depth analysis is then conducted on TGAC’s high performance computers to enable scientists across Norwich Research Park to link environmental data with crop growth and development to reduce farming costs.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
