The Robotics Vision research group at the Department of Physics and Engineering of Northwest Nazarene University conducts research on machine vision technologies applicable to automation, robotics, and other areas like agriculture.
At present, the team is working on developing a remote sensing system that monitors an agricultural field. The system is composed of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) mounted with a multispectral camera that acquires images of the field from a bird’s-eye view.
