The solution to bridge the gap between business and IT
Management tools - The solution to bridge the gap between business and IT is to implement management tools.
Fully fledged solutions for large-scale phenotyping and quality control processes in the agrochemical sector.
As a manufacturer of camera systems for phenotyping, PhenoVation launched a low-code solution to support data-driven plant research. Supported by USoft’s experience in building modular software, this solution is the first of its kind in the agrochemical sector, creating a unique position for PhenoVation. Customers can take measurements faster and more objectively than ever, and the low-code application provides a major improvement in efficiency in processing crop photos. The cutting-edge combination of cameras and software enables large-scale agrochemical research.
PhenoVation supplies cameras that make diverse types of images, achieving plant assessment far beyond the limits of human vision. To support researchers in understanding the effects of numerous factors on various plant species, the company needed a solution that could rank and analyze large volumes of sensor data in real time. The goal: for researchers to easily access their field data, quickly analyze the results, and determine the best strategy for their crop research.
Automate crop image assessment & analysis
Environmental conditions also need to be monitored
Desire for disruptive solutions
USoft had the necessary experience in building modular and complex software solutions at a high industrial level.
No need for PhenoVation to maintain a large team of software developers in-house; USoft’s low-code platform based on business rules made it all possible to implement the solution quickly and rapidly respond to changing customer requirements.
The USoft approach supported PhenoVation’s ambitions to move away from manual image processing and analysis. The result: significant improvements in efficiency and quality of day-to-day plant research processes.
The high-tech, plug-and-play camera systems supplied by PhenoVation are easy to use and easy to integrate into large-scale automated phenotyping systems. And with the low-code phenotyping solution developed on the USoft low-code platform, PhenoVation can now offer the agrochemical sector a state-of-the-art solution for image-based phenotyping.
The cooperation between USoft and PhenoVation resulted in the first low-code phenotyping solution in the agrochemical sector, used by plant growers in combination with the company’s high-tech crop imaging systems.
PhenoVation’s customers can now use the images produced by the camera systems to automatically rank and analyze large numbers of crop photos in real time.
Applying multiple AI pipelines to analyze the growth effects of plant treatments, results can now be analyzed quickly, supporting plant growers in determining the best strategy and supporting ongoing research.
Thanks to USoft, the imaging systems delivered by PhenoVation come fully equipped with analysis software, enabling customers to measure photosynthesis efficiency, chlorophyll absorption, morphology, and color details.
The low-code application achieves major improvements in image processing efficiency and consistency. Analysis is now performed 10X faster and for 30,000 samples+ a day, with an 80% decrease in error margins.
PhenoVation’s customers can access continuous progress updates on crop surveys and projects, ensuring a single and user-friendly source of information that is always up-to-date and can be consulted anywhere.
