Abstract

A new wheeled vehicle had been developed for crop close proximity monitoring of Miscanthus, which could be one of the most potential candidate of bioenergy crop, and have been paid attention nowadays. The new vehicle employed 4WD-4WS system. And 3×3×3 meters steel frame structure was especially designed for tall crops as Miscanthus. The new data acquisition vehicle makes data sampling much convenient and efficient without huge labor consumption. The data acquired by remote sensing system on the platform could increases the spatial, spectral and temporal resolution of the crop remote sensing data significantly, comparing to satellite and aerial remote sensing system.
