AGERpoint® AWARDED THREE ADDITIONAL PATENTS
Systems and Methods for Monitoring Agricultural Products and for Determining Crop Yields With High Resolution Geo-Referenced Sensors
AGERpoint®, a leading Precision Agriculture Data Analytics company centered around precise data collection and analytics, announced the issue of three additional patents by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The AGERpoint patent portfolio now comprises a total of eight patents related to precision agriculture using our innovative and breakthrough technology.
The first new patent, US 10,520,482, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS” was issued on December 31st, 2019 and relates to a plant analysis system that determines spectral signatures of plants based on spectral data, and plant color based on photographic data. The spectral signatures and plant color are associated with assembled point cloud data which morphological data can be generated. A record of the plant can be created that associates the plant with the spectral signature, plant color, spectral data, assembled point cloud data, and morphological data, and stored in a library.
The second new patent, US 10,534,086, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCED SENSORS” was issued on January 14th, 2020 and relates to controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard. The modular processing unit may fuse the collected data together and transmit the fused data set to a post-processing server.
The third new patent, US 10,539,545, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS” was issued January 21st, 2019 and relates to monitoring fruit production, plant growth, and plant vitality.
“We are excited to announce the expansion of our patent portfolio. We’ve spent many years innovating, including pioneering the use of Geiger Mode LiDAR and then fusing multiple data sources, to capture and uncover unique insights. We have developed the most advanced permanent crop data sensing, ML, AI and analytics platform enabled by our intellectual property.” said Andrew J. Nash, CEO of AGERpoint. He expanded with “We will continue to invest in research and development while working closely with our customers and partners as we address the data and insight needs of the scientific community to advance discovery and invention, as well as with growers and all participants in the value chain.”
