Purdue seeks to optimize sorghum energy yield for transportation fuel. The team uses advanced sensors mounted on ground-based systems (Figure 2) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to monitor several traits throughout the growing season, including plant height, canopy cover, leaf-area index, spectral indices, and leaf number.

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) project aims to: (1) develop low cost, autonomous robots with sensors to rapidly collect phenotypic information within large field trials (Figure 2); (2) develop software to deliver high-throughput phenomics from the sensor data; (3) use a model-based data synthesis system to capture physiological parameters and predict yield; and (4) integrate this diverse information with whole-genome DNA sequencing technologies to identify genes underlying the traits and their genetic markers that will maximize the pace of trait discovery.
