Sensor Uses AI to Obtain Real-Time Images from Satellite Orbit

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
TOKYO, Jan. 22, 2019 — Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have developed a low-cost star tracker and Earth sensor. The star tracker will be used with microsatellites to handle calibration observations, operation verification tests, and long-term performance monitoring during orbit. The Earth camera, with a design inspired by “edge computing,” will perform image recognition while in orbit using an artificial intelligence (AI) system to identify land use and vegetation distribution. The star tracker and Earth sensor were installed on the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s...Read full article
