Berry Construction

Tackling high throughput plant phenotyping, the Berry Construction project aims to bridge the quality advantages of structured laboratory 3D reconstruction and the scalability of outdoor, small-scene reconstruction with a scalable, low-cost 3D scanner. While fluoroscopy analysis from 2D images has garnered much success in plant phenotyping, such analysis in 3D is largely unexplored. In 3D reconstruction, plants pose as challenging subjects from which extracting high quality geometries and textures is difficult. Using an ensemble of cheap cameras like Pi v2 cameras to synchronously capture images, we aim to overcome reconstruction artifacts like phantom limbs and lighting inconsistencies commonly found in-field methods. In the long run, we plan to deploy a fully active perception phenotyping system through a swarm of microdrones which we hope will substantially reduce the total pesticide residuals which can have negative effects on the environment and biodiversity
