Airlangga University nanotechnology expert Andi Hamim Zaidan, M.Si, Ph.D. (Personal Doc.)
UNAIR NEWS – Currently, hyperspectral imaging is not widely adopted in the commercial domain, including agriculture. Andi Hamim Zaidan, M.Si, Ph.D, together with a team at the Institute of Biological Engineering and Engineering (LIHTR) Universitas Airlangga created hyperspectral technology for agriculture and aquaculture.
This hyperspectral imaging has various benefits for the world of agriculture. Measure crop relevance using hyperspectral imaging cameras mounted on drones or manned aircraft; analyzes the spectrum of reflected light and correlates it with plant and soil characteristics. Also, identify potential agricultural problems such as disease, nutritional deficiencies, weeds, and environmental stress.
