Raspberry Pi at MIT and Fluorescence Detection

Here’s a great article I read this morning from MIT. One more piece to the puzzle. Enjoy.

“These sensors give real-time information from the plant. It is almost like having the plant talk to us about the environment they are in,” Wong says. “In the case of precision agriculture, having such information can directly affect yield and margins.”

I don’t do land mines and explosives yet surely do like the fluorescence detection technology with the Raspberry Pi for use in monitoring our agriculture.
