The objective of this project is to design a product with the capability of gathering health diagnostics from a pet and relaying that information to its owners. The goal is to use a harness equipped with sensors that can analyze the animal’s heart rate, breathing rate, and temperature. Just as humans’ wearable technology impacts early diagnosis for medical issues and awareness of general health today, this technology in theory will be able to do the same and lead to a longer lifespan in most pets; this in turn will have a positive impact on pet owners’ mental health.
Design and Programming a Smart Camera for a Drone to Collect and Process Images of Crops to Provide Cost-Effective Plant-Health Analysis
The objective of this project is to find a practical and cost-effective solution for gathering preliminary plant-health information. The goal is to conduct research using RGB (red, green, blue) images combined with image analysis techniques in comparison to crop yields, while also finding a practical way to gather these images. A smart camera was developed using a microcontroller and camera attached to a drone. The modified drone flies over crops at predetermined intervals, and using image analysis, a grid is created and images are collected of the most affected areas.
