We have been working in DIY technology to be applied as part of The Vineyard of The Future and it has been picked up by The University of Melbourne to develop easy to do and DIY laboratory kits. Now, students are able to access cheap and robust instrumentation organised as DIY kits, so they can assemble it, program it and acquire different kind of data from crops. This enable student to understand different physiological processes and how to monitor them for practical applications into:

Disease diagnosis

Plant water status for irrigation management

Vigour monitoring and fertiliser use

Spatial and temporal monitoring of physiological parameters using unmanned aerial and terrestrial vehicles (UAV & UTV).
