Drones, or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), can be used to collect information that's invisible to the human eye. Arko Lucieer is an Associate Professor in Remote Sensing in the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Group, School of Land and Food at the University of Tasmania. His research focuses on the use of UAS for quantitative remote sensing and high-precision aerial surveys for environmental and agricultural applications.

"This is a video compilation of the first hyperspectral image collection in Antarctica with a multi-rotor UAV. We used a modified Droidworx SkyJib airframe and the Headwall Photonics micro-Hyperspec pushbroom scanner for collection of hyperspectral imagery of Antarctic moss beds. We are studying the distribution and health status of the moss beds in the Windmill Islands region, East Antarctica."

Arko Lucieer - March 2013

More than meets the eye

Drone technology helps us to see the invisible

What we call drones, Arko Luceer calls Unmanned Aircraft. Systems, or UAS. For him they're a means of collecting images and data in real time.

'We used to rely on satellite images like the ones you'd see on Google Earth, but they often don't allow us to get close enough to the ground, and of course the images you see are already out of date. Sometimes what we need to see is obscured by clouds. Drones are the perfect solution as they let us capture information when we need it and exactly where we need it,' said Arko.

'Drones also allow us to capture detail outside of the visible spectrum. The human eye sees only part of what's there. We mount special sensors onto the UAS that see in a wider range, including the infrared, which means that suddenly things such as the health of a crop or tree community can be seen in stark relief.

'I've used drones in Antarctica to monitor the growth and health of the only plant that grows there – a moss that lives for hundreds of years and which may give us important information about climate change.'

'We've recently worked on a local Tasmanian vineyard, to assess the health of the vines, and with Tasmanian poppy farmers to look for ways to estimate the alkaloid content of the poppy heads.'

Other research involves monitoring landslides and coastal erosion,' said Arko.

Some people imagine that flying drones would be a bit of fun, but Arko says it is a lot of responsibility to fly something worth so much money.

'We fly with state-of-the-art sensors, such as laser scanners, thermal sensors, hyperspectral scanners, and high accuracy positioning devices. The unique imagery that these sensors acquire allow us to make the invisible visible. Our goal is to translate these image into ultra-high resolution maps, which ultimately improve our knowledge'

'Our drones, along with their specialised detectors, can be worth more than $60,000, which can be scary to fly with at times,' he said.

'We're in manual control when the drones take off after which the autopilot takes over to follow a pre-defined flight path with GPS waypoints,' Arko said.

'In any case, as exciting as the drones are we're more interested in the sensors and the data.'

'Talking to the people in different industries adds a lot to my job satisfaction, and makes the work relevant. They're experts in their areas and sometimes they ask questions or put out there what they'd like to solve, and that triggers a new field of enquiry for us to pursue,' said Arko.

'I love having students from all kinds of backgrounds, ranging from surveying to computer science to agriculture to geography, who find something within this field that sparks their interest. They learn a lot from each other and I learn from them as well. It's a true collaboration.'

Biography

Before joining The University of Tasmania in 2004, Arko was a PhD student at the International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) and Utrecht University in The Netherlands (2000 – 2004) where he looked at quantifying and visualising uncertainty in image segmentation and classification algorithms. He completed his MSc in Physical Geography at Utrecht University in 2000, specialising in hyperspectral remote sensing and GIS.

Research Themes

Arko's research aligns with three University's research themes: Marine, Antarctic and Maritime; Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions

The TerraLuma research project at the University of Tasmania develops novel tools and algorithms for environmental remote sensing applications and aerial surveys using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Up-to-date and accurate spatial data are of crucial importance for sustainable management of our eco- and agrosystems. UAS offer an exciting and novel opportunity to map and understand the environment in greater detail than ever before.

One of the unique aspects of this project is that we operate and integrate multiple sensors to 'make the invisible visible'. These specialised sensor include multispectral and hyperspectral (VNIR), thermal, and LiDAR sensors to map and monitor different aspects of the environment at centimetre resolution on-demand.  UAS give the ability to bridge the scale gap between field-based observations and full-scale airborne or satellite observations.

We have worked on a range of applications, including precision agriculture and viticulture; mapping and monitoring vegetation in remote locations such as Antarctica; deriving 3D tree structure for forest inventories; landslide deformation monitoring; 3D stock pile and quarry surveys and volume estimations; assessment of coastal erosion; mapping of geological structures; better understanding functions of natural vegetation communities such as saltmarshes; transforming images into knowledge.

Unmanned aerial vehicles for enhanced monitoring: the future of precision agriculture (2016 - 2018)$72,354
Description
The aim of this proposal is to exploit advances in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), spectral synergies across optical to thermal infrared observations, and a coupled water-energy-carbon modeling framework to deliver plant-scale water use and metrics of crop health for a new-era of precision agriculture. Currently, even basic information on within-field variability of water and nutrient status is unavailable at the farm scale on a routine basis, limiting the capacity to optimize irrigation scheduling, fertilizer application and crop production. While satellite data can be used to provide periodic sensing of agricultural systems, the spatial and temporal resolution are generally inadequate to facilitate effective crop management. Even where data is available, it is either prohibitively expensive or requires advanced processing, limiting its utility to the end-user. We contend that the future of agricultural sensing lies in exploiting game-changing developments in UAVs. Recent technological leaps in UAVs and miniaturized sensors provide a capacity to autonomously collect information at unprecedented spatial resolution on demand. Unfortunately, while the technology has developed rapidly, the science required to exploit these advances has lagged, providing an opportunity to shape this nascent field. One of the outstanding scientific challenges lies in translating UAV based spectral observations into crop-based metrics useful for agricultural management and decision support. Using maps of UAV retrieved leaf chlorophyll and carotenoids as independent measures of plant health, our proposal will integrate these plant traits into an augmented water, carbon and energy cycle modeling framework, delivering enhanced predictions of distributed crop water use, reflecting within-field nutrient variability. Our project is positioned at the cusp of a new era in Earth observation and environmental monitoring. To realize the potential of UAVs for precision agriculture will require significant developments in our understanding of plant-water interactions, modeling of crop water use, and integration of remotely sensed data into redesigned model systems. Apart from addressing fundamental science in the translation of plant spectral response to physiological traits, our goal oriented project will also increase the participation of students and women, with two highly qualified female scholars already identified for roles as a post-doctoral scientist and a PhD student.

Description
The aim of this project is to develop an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) based on a multi-rotor helicopter equipped with a laser scanner for generation of ultra-high resolution point clouds of inventory plots in P. radiate plantations. The goal is to estimate the tree height and stem diameter at 1.3 m, in addition to enabling 3D visual assessment of stem quality (sweep, double headers, size of the branches) from UAS-acquired 3D point clouds. This requires ultra-high resolution point clouds (>100 points per m2) that are geometrically accurate. This study aims to test the feasibility of UAV-based LiDAR for plot measurements.

Description
The general aim of this project is to take first steps towards a large-scale operational Antarctic terrestrial monitoring system, by analysing the existing ground and unmanned airborne observations of moss ecosystems collected in the vicinity of the Australian Antarctic station Casey. Particularly, we will determine the optimal and the minimal necessary spectral, spatial, and temporal remote sensing requirements to address regional-to-global questions about dynamic physiological development of moss ecosystems, indicating the actual Antarctic coastal climate changes.

Thermal infrared image sensing from Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for precision viticulture (2014)$6,000
Description
This project will initiate development and application of a new tool for remote infrared imaging that will help make precision viticulture more accessible, attractive and easier to adopt. A thermal infrared imaging sensor (FLIR Photon 320) deployed on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as UAVs or drones) will be used to capture raw data and produce a high-resolution map of absolute crop temperatures for a vineyard block at specific times of the day and/or critical stages during the growing season. The various steps in this workflow have previously been identified, including sensor lens and radiometric calibration, and in-situ data collection at the time of thermal image acquisition. The maps produced will be calibrated and validated with field observations.

Design of communication gateways for micro-sensing devices deployable on insects (2014 - 2016)$109,083
Description
This project will focus on exploring, designing and implementing communication solutions for micro-sensing devices, considering tight energy budgets. The possible communication solutions could include radio-frequency identification (RFIOs), radio in the VHF range, light (laser, LEOs), as well as high-GHz to THz range waves (Mom2011 ), (f\br2003]. To increase the effective communication reach of these devices, mobile receivers will be deployed on aerial robots (drones). Furthermore, the drones could acquire additional data along the insect's flight path, like local temperature, lighting, and (multispectral) imaging data. The key Fundamental Science questions are: (1) How accurately can micro-sensing devices be tracked in the field? (2) Is it possible to efficiently build an ad-hoc network of micro-sensing devices? What are the real benefits of this approach of sensor-sensor communication? (3) How to deal with loss of sensors and/or data gaps over time? Miniaturised electronics has enabled a number of applications such as tracking and tagging to emerge. However, sensing at the sub-mm scale has not been become possible mainly because of energy and communication constraints. The significance of this project lies in: (1) deploying not only a couple, but dozens of RFIDs in a swarm of insects to gain understanding of their behaviour; (2) designing communication solutions for sub-mm sensing devices advancing further than current commercially available alternatives; (3) exploring sensor-sensor communication in a sub-mm sensor network. This research project will deliver unprecedented data on both insect behaviour and on microclimate and, furthermore, on their relationships.
