Low-Cost Multispetral Camera

Low-Cost Multispetral Camera


Develop a new low-cost multispectral camera that can be installed in the field, sending images regularly to a user and/or for local processing of the images acquired. The multispectral camera will be formed by an array of cameras, each with a transparent optical filter at a given light wavelength.


Several possible uses of the technology will be tested:

  • Automatic fish identification system for fishing vessels
  • Non-destructive measurement of sugars in the grape
  • Incorporation of the multispectral camera in two systems, one for monitoring fisheries and another for fleet management

INOV participation

  • Construction of a prototype for a multispectral camera
  • Development of algorithms that allow fish identification with data from the camera
  • Adapting the use of the camera to a viticulture task
  • Development of algorithms that identify the level of conservation of transported perishable products
