Sensing tools: From handheld to large scale

In the framework of the STARGATE project, we are pleased to announce a two-day scientific workshop to be held online on the 18th and 19th of May 2021.

This 2-day online workshop will have two-morning sessions with teaching, targeting Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs), including Ph.D. students and young postdocs. Plus, there will be a live tour in the new phenotyping centre of Wageningen University & Research.

About the session

The workshop starts with a general presentation of the STARGATE project followed by a session on basic image capture and basic phenotyping using UAVs. This part will be directed mainly at ESRs of the participating institutions, but also open to the general public.

This two-day scientific workshop will also include training on competencies needed for the implementation of sensor technologies systems in as well affordable small scale and high-tech large-scale settings, on the use of robotics and automation to collect phenotypic data in controlled conditioned such as climate rooms and greenhouses, plus on for large scale screening using drones and unmanned vehicles on the experimental field.

Data collected with these sensors need to be organised, and one of the project partners, INRAE, will present their data management platform PHIS concept and explain the requirements to link to environmental sensor data to characterise in which conditions the plants were grown.

The workshop will be as interactive as possible within the constraints of an online environment. The afternoon sessions will mainly consist of homework assignments, Q&A sessions, and an interactive tour through the NPEC facilities.
