Roots Analysis Service

RootCam analysis service offers a detailed look into the growth and development of plant root systems. It provides researchers, farmers, and gardeners with comprehensive insights and structured data, which can be used to make informed decisions about the health and growth of their plants.

Analysis Service

To understand your plant, you need to start from the roots. After activating your Minirhizotron and acquiring a LOT of images, you get to the daunting task of annotating the images and measuring root length and width. But not anymore. Now you can ask the computer to measure your root length and area in each image and get a fast and accurate result.

Crystal vision's automatic root analyzer will do the task in a matter of seconds, the result will be formatted in a clear comma separated file (csv). You could process them with excel or your own software of choice. Need to stitch your images? We do it automatically.

To use our analysis service, please follow these steps:

  1. Take photos of the roots you wish to analyze.

  2. Send the photos to our office's email address:

  3. Our AI model will analyze the root's length and width at each depth.

  4. We will send you the results by email.

Please contact us at to send a sample so you can see the results.

RootCam Camera System

Our RootCam camera system is designed specifically for monitoring the roots of plants through the subsoil. It utilizes a transparent tube with a diameter of 6 cm and a length of approximately 100 cm that is buried in the ground, along with a small camera mounted on a rail that moves through the tube. The camera takes high-resolution images every 20 minutes with a resolution of approximately 0.01 mm (2592 x 1944 at 2500 Dpi). These images are saved on a Raspberry Pi device, which is easily accessible via a network cable. The RootCam is powered by a 12 VDC converter (on 220 VAC mains) and comes with a user-friendly interface for ease of use.

If you prefer to use a different camera, our analysis service is still available to you. You don't need to use our RootCam camera system in order to benefit from our analysis service.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our service, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're committed to helping you optimize the care and management of your plants, leading to healthier, more productive plants and crops.
