IntelLiDrives XYZ Robot Helps Researchers to Develop Weather-resistant Crops
Date:8/27/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

IntelLiDrives released a new robotically controlled vertical XYZ gantry that has been succesfully applied by the plant physiology researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to automate image acquisition system, using robotic camera CCD imagers and XYZ vertical gantry system, to create time lapsed movies of plant growth in action. System collects images of plants that have been genetically altered with the intention of understanding of how the genetic manipulation affects their growth and development.

XYZ gantry consists of computer-controlled linear actuators, each integrating brushless linear servo motor with high resolution linear encoder, moves the CCD cameras over a 1m x 1m area with a positioning resolution of 10 microns. Additional linear axis allows change of camera’s field of view to acquire well focused images of seedlings in Petri plates.

Robotic camera snaps pictures every 30 seconds, capturing the curling, twisting motion of germinating seeds putting out new roots.

After capture, the images are analyzed to determine cellular growth rates in the root as well as the angle and curvature of the root tip. Computer vision algorithms study the camera’s time-lapse videos and measure the sizes of seeds, plants’ cellular growth rates, the angle and curvature of the roots, and more.

By using this XYZ Robot with computer vision system gives researchers the ability to automate the plant growth time-lapsed image acquisition and processing and to increase throughput of experiments to track the plants growth and development. Now researchers can find the genes that control plant’s root growth and have fundamental importance to crop improvement. It lays th
