Portable device "Floratest" for express-diagnostics of plants state for agriculture and ecological monitoring

Portable device "Floratest" for express-diagnostics of plant state allows easy to estimate the level of influence of stress factors of natural or anthropogenic origin on alive plants. The device is based on real time processing of the curve of chlorophyll fluorescent induction. The portable device "Floratest" measures intensity of chlorophyll fluorescent induction without plant destruction. By the form of curve of chlorophyll fluorescent induction (closed to cardiogram) the influence of stress factor to the plant is determined.

Serial device "Floratest"

Device and relevant diagnostic methods refer to the area of biological object researches by detecting their biophysical properties, particularly native chlorophyll fluorescent induction. Device is defined as smart biosensor with fragment of live plant as sensing element.

Express-diagnostic of plant state is based on using of features of separate specific sections of chlorophyll fluorescent induction curve, which refer to separate areas of photosynthesis chains as diagnostic features. By chlorophyll fluorescent induction curve form it is easily to detect influence of one or another factor on the plant state.

Photosynthesis and induction of fluorescence of chlorophyll operate in direct competition for a finite pool of absorbed light energy. Any change in energy utilization by one process produces a complementary change in the others. So this fact enables induction of fluorescence of chlorophyll to be used as express and reliable non-invasive estimation of photosynthesis. Portable device "Floratest" is intended specifically to detect the chlorophyll fluorescence emission from leaf of plant. The main features of new device design are wide dynamic range, high precision and speed, low quiescent current and low operating voltage. The device is to be designed as opened system, user reprogrammable and easy-to-use. To be used in field conditions the new design has to be portable and battery application with low operating voltage.

Application areas of portable device "Floratest":

–    Express estimating plant life activity after drought, freeze, imps, pesticide application;
–    Express estimating optimal dozes of fertilizers and biological active admixtures. It makes possible to reduce nitrate content in fruits and vegetables;
–    Precision farming technology optimization using the device for validation of remote observation of  agricultural lands;
–    Express estimating land pollutions by pesticides, heavy metals, industrial emissions and  their impact to green planting in megalopolis;
–    Water and energy saving in artificial watering;
–    Forecasting future crop;
–    Automating scientific research in plant physiology area in universities and research institutes.

The main performances of portable device "Floratest":

–    maximum luminous intensity                                5000 mcd;
–    wave length of irradiation                                      450-470 nm;
–    wave length of photodiode amplifier with filter          670-770 nm;
–    measuring error                                                   £5%;
–    weight of base unit                                              0.5 kg;
–    weight of head                                                    40 g;
–    price                                                                  250 USD.

The advantages of developing biosensor device in comparison with foreign competitor devices are following:

  • The hardware update of developing device is provided by changing optical remote sensor.
  • Developing device is designed as open system. It is possible to input new designed by customer methods as applied software to the microcontroller unit of developing device.
  • New methods, developed for device, have no analog and are intended for saving energy and water resources in artificial watering, optimal dozing biological active admixtures, fertilizers, pesticides, detecting in latent period infectious diseases of agricultural plants, estimating impact on plant adverse weather and anthropogenic stress factors.
  • The unit price of device "Floratest" in serial production will be lower than prices of foreign competitor devices in 3 – 5 times.

Information Communicator for Medicine

Mutual understanding and communication between doctors and patients is a very important problem as in medicine, so in telemedicine. Ability of correct communication and mutual understanding during the disease or separate stage of disease helps to diagnose, prognose a clinical behaviour, and accelerate the recovery.

Communication problems between a doctor and a patient influence correctness of the diagnoses and quality of a doctor aid, and complicate the medical treatment.

It is proposed to apply special hardware-software means, particularly information communicators to simplify the communication of doctors with patients (particularly with voice limitation) and increase treatment efficiency beginning from the first contact.

Information communicators are used for the following purposes:

1. In medicine: for supporting first contact of doctors with patients (with voice limitation), and getting information about patient state, for example, during the preliminary examination of patients. Particularly it is very important for family doctors because they are the firsts who examine patients with different diseases. Sometimes family doctors have no enough knowledge and experience to diagnose.
2. To make emergency medical aid for patients with voice limitation: in this case the information communicators help patients to communicate with doctors.
Special application-dependent software consists of two subsystems. The first subsystem is used for the first contact of a doctor and a patient. The second subsystem is used for alternative communication of doctors with patient lost temporarily or permanently possibility of speaking.

Detailed description:

The developed subsystem of proposed information communicator contains a data base with detailed information on majority of diseases and traumas, its symptoms, diagnostic methods and first aid actions. The main window of communicator with the list of diseases and injuries and the window with details of illness or injury, for example the asthma, is shown on figures.

      

The other aim of information communicator is to support alternative communication with voice and motion limited patients. The idea of alternative communication is rather simple. Voice limited patient needs communication with surroundings in any way. The process of establishing relations with additional means helps patient with voice limitation to express his needs and wishes.

Proposed information communicator makes it possible communication doctors and patients with move and voice limitation. There are five menu items: needs, recourse, pain, emergency aid, and keyboard.

      

Menu item "Needs" means for screening list of patient needs, particularly needs of eating, drinking, sleeping, pain relief, establish silence, hygienic procedure, etc. Menu item "Recourse" means for screening a list of patient recourse, particularly keep silence; speak loudly, on/off radio or TV, close/open window, etc. It is possible to extend these lists.

Menu item "Pain" helps a patient to specify the centre of pain location. The human body icon or its separate parts (hands, arms, head, feet, legs, torso, etc.) are displayed for the pain location. Voice commentary of these icons is possible. Pain location first of all is very important for protecting move limitation patients from decubitus.

Menu item "Emergency aid" means for emergency doctor call. The call is attended by the audible alarm.

Menu item "Keyboard" means for adding needs or recourses missing in menu bars. It is possible to convert written by patient needs to voice.

Technical requirements for the development of speciality application-dependent software of information communicator are rather simple. For this purposes it is needed a single core tablet computer with 10 inches sensor monitor, clock frequency 1.2 GHz, RAM 512 MB, ROM 4 GB, OS Android 4.0. In addition it is possible to apply a monitor smaller than 10 inches, but its application complicates data reading.

Advantages of information communicator:

–    no direct competitors;
–    easy use;
–    multi-languages;
–    multi-functional;
–    hospital and medical universities tested;
–    compatibility with most types of tablet computers.

The approximate price of software part is from 50 USD, depending on available functions.

Development stage:

The information communicator for medicine is ready for serial production.

Wireless Sensor Network for Precision Farming, Environmental Protection and Medicine

In agriculture, ecological monitoring and medicine it is very important to obtain data of the real-time influence of stress factors of natural or anthropogenic origin on the state of biological objects (e.g. plants, humans etc.). For this purposes special means are used in modern industrial agriculture, environmental monitoring, medicine and military applications. The applications of modern achievements in microelectronics, biosensors, and communications and information technologies make it possible to solve this rather complicated problem of real-time monitoring of state of lots of biological objects. The most perspective technology for realization of data acquisition and processing systems is wireless sensor network.

So, development of low-cost wireless smart biosensors for express-diagnostics of common state of biological objects and creating the proper software and methodical support for integration of these biosensors into wireless sensor network for express-diagnostics of plant state on large territories are the urgent tasks for precision agriculture, environmental protection and medicine.

For designing nodes of wireless sensor network it was chosen the wireless microcontroller JN5168, manufactured by NXP Company. Microcontroller includes 32-bit processor with 1–32 MHz clock speed, 2,4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 compliant transceiver, 4-input 10-bit ADC and a comprehensive mix of analogue and digital peripherals etc. This microcontroller complies with the network nodes requirements. It supports data acquisition, data storage and data transferring via wireless channel.

The standardization and unification requirements to wireless sensor network are determined by 802.15.4 standard, which defines features of creation of networks with low data throughput. In additional ZigBee and JenNet-IP protocols determine requirements to network routing and security. JenNet-IP protocol was selected.

The JenNet-IP protocol combines IEEE802.15.4-based wireless network technology and the Internet Protocol (IP) to achieve integration between the two domains, supporting the wireless "Internet of Things". Due to the nodes of a wireless network are to be controlled both wirelessly and from IP-connected device, such as a smart remotely located phone.
