Plants use internal electrical, hydraulic and chemical signalling networks to coordinate growth and defence. Electrical signals are some of the fastest to spread information across the entire plant. Vivent’s technology, and artificial intelligence, lets researchers interpret this information to measure plant health, and to diagnose stressful conditions e.g. pathogens prior to visible symptoms. In response to (a)biotic stimuli the ion transporters in many individual plant cells respond simultaneously, producing an electrical change characteristic of that stimuli. Advanced signal processing isolates this characteristic in different time scales and provides an accurate diagnosis of the plant’s condition in real time.
