ASABE Annual International Meeting. Paper No. 121338444. Technical Abstract: An Unmanned Agricultural Robotics System (UARS) is acquired, rebuilt with desired hardware, and operated in both classrooms and field. The UARS includes crop height sensor, crop canopy analyzer, normalized difference vegetative index (NDVI) sensor, multispectral camera, and hyperspectral radiometer. Under both laboratory and field conditions, the system is used to measure real-time crop conditions include NDVI, biomass, canopy structure, and height, then import data into a GIS for georeferencing purposes.
