Raspberry Pi Infragram

« Back to Infragram

This page collects research on using #raspberry-pi based cameras (aka #pi-camera) to take Infragram multispectral photos, for plant health analysis. It is supported in part by the AREN project at NASA.

Design goals

Low cost, low complexity, easy to build and open source!

Also see the Image Sequencer project which is designed to run on a Raspberry Pi for on-board image processing.

To get a kit with this already set up on an SD card and/or Raspberry Pi camera, see:


Questions can be either frequently asked questions, or "next step" challenges we're looking to solve.
