Triangular Greenness Index (TGI)

Triangular Greenness Index (TGI) is calcultated from the area of a triangle that is defined by 3 points for the reflectance pf wavelength (480nm, R480, 550nm, R550 and 670nm, R670, R= Reflectance of wavelength). The formula for TGI is: TGI = -0.5[190(R670 – R550) – 120(R670 – R480)] Article: U.S. Department of Agriculture: Agricultural ResearchService,

Bird Management

There are drones that have been designed to mimic the flight behavior of predator birds to scare away pest birds that feed off the fruit from a grower’s crop. Further, many of these drones have a predator bird silhouette and emit sounds that add to the alarming menace of the drone. Currently, these drones must

Indirect Measurement

Indirect measurement is typically used in science to ascertain the size of something that can’t actually be measured in a directly quantifiable way. Thus, it is necessary to estimate the desired target size by measurement of a known object or area and extrapolate the unknown value from the known values directly measured. Learn More (Last

Fog Computing

The term, fog computing, was originated by Cisco. It is used to indicate the edge of an enterprise’s network. Fog computing has also been labeled as Fogging or Edge Computing. The concept is intended to describe the computing nodes available between a host device and the cloud. Therefore, it is considered to be a decentralized
