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

VARI, Visual Atmospheric Resistance Index

VARI was originally designed for satellite imagery. It is a vegetation index the uses only light waves from the visible light  section of the spectrum (Red, Green, Blue). It puts a quantitative value on vegetative fraction estimation (VARI = (Green – Red) / (Green + Red – Blue). The index is only affected by atmospheric

IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) Sensor

An IMU sensor is a digital device that measures and records an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’s acceleration, angular rate, and orientation in order to maneuver it. The IMU uses a conflation of accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers to achieve the measuring process. Recent developments in this area has allowed for IMU-enabled GPS (Global Positioning System) devices as
