Computer Vision Laboratory




 We are developing methods for the analysis of hyperspectral images, aimed at detecting disease in crops.

Detecting disease early, preferably before it has symptoms visible to humans, is vitally important in improving crop yields over the coming years, and reducing the excessive use of fertiliser where not necessary.

Hyperspectral images allow us to see many additional light wavelength, beyond the red, green and blue wavelengths usually associated with cameras. This additional information provides much more information, which we hope will indicate the presence of disease before it appears clearly in the visible spectrum.
