3D imaging – the Maxi-MARVIN

Maxi MARVIN

The Maxi-Marvin is a high throughput plant phenotyping device which has been developed in-house by Wageningen University & Research. The MARVIN technology generates 3D models of plants and accurately determines the size and shape of leaves and stems plus the overall architecture in milliseconds. SMO will integrate the Maxi-MARVIN in the conveyor-based phenotyping setup in the NPEC greenhouse.

By early 2021 the NPEC Greenhouse will be ready for large scale research and experiments!
