In the line with the advanced technology development, remote sensing technology is no more alien in today's world. iRadar CEO, Prof. Ir. Dr Koo was invited to discuss remote sensing and its applications in a webinar organized by University Tun Abdul Razak (UTAR) in conjunction with the e-KLESF event. The event was held on 30th October 2021 on Facebook Live and Zoom to promote IGARSS 2022. During the speech, Prof. Ir. Dr Koo explained what is remote sensing and how it benefits society in daily life especially in agriculture and safety.
Remote sensing is the data acquisition of information about the objects on earth such as plants and ground. It is responsible for interpreting the data from a distance, using sensors, not in physical contact with the object. Remote sensing usually detects and measures electromagnetic energy, including visible and non-visible radiation between interaction surface materials and the atmosphere.
Remote sensing benefit is not only limited to ground deformation monitoring but also can be used in detecting disease in the plant. The recent development in the usage of UAV has become another alternative of remote sensing for disease detection. UAV is a valuable means to monitor crop growth parameters such as biomass, leaf area index (LAI), and chlorophyll content can be measured with different sensors. Multispectral (MS) and hyperspectral (HS) cameras have been widely used to monitor plant growth and biochemical indicators for many options of vegetation indices.
The Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair (KLESF is an initiative with various programs and activities that aim to promote interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) among primary and secondary school students.
The KLESF partners comprise of the ASEAN Academy of Engineering and Technology (AAET), The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), Malaysian Industry-Government Group of High Technology (MIGHT), Malaysian Invention and Design Society (MINDS), Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC) and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR).
