As sensors become smaller and imaging equipment becomes more sensitive, more companies and labs are developing and implementing automated platforms to collect data. Below is a list of platforms that are currently being sold or developed. 


TerraSentia, developed by EarthSense, is an ultra-compact, autonomous robot with multiple sensors and embedded data collection and analytics software for phenotyping.
