FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New “Baby Jogger” Mobile Sensor Platform for Field Applications
Torrance, California, USA, September 23, 2002 — A mobile field platform
for mounting various imaging and spectroscopic instruments for use in field
measurements was released by OKSI. The “Baby Jogger” uses 20” wheels and
allows for an easy access into rows of plants. Applications include plant
physiology studies, ground truthing for remote sensing application, and other
precision farming activities.
The platform folds and fits in the back of a van. Unfolding and assembly
is done in about 15 minutes. The platform has a shelf for a computer and an
adjustable jib arm for raising and lowering the sensor. The jib arm height above
the ground is adjustable and maximum height depends on the sensor weight. The
wheel spacing is adjustable to fit between rows of various crops and planting
