USGA Summary Points:A ground-based, imaging system for turfgrass evaluation was developed which could be attached on an off-road vehicle, preferably an electric vehicle to implement field data collection. The results from the initial field implementation of the ground imaging system showed that the two selected cameras provided good data for most of the traits of interests. However, the green color shades were hard to differentiate from each other due to interferences from sunlight and shadows of surroundings. A better lighting and imaging system needs to be designed. The UAV-based system provided very good information on the color and size comparison among the samples in the experimental field. A thermal camera may be another add-on to evaluate the stresses.
