This paper shows the potential of using robotics for data acquisition within full-scale field trials. Robotics ensured simultaneously measurements from several sensors from GPS targeted sampling points. This was demonstrated by supporting a project developing methods to measure gap fraction and canopy structure in cereals. The project required measurements from ordinary barley canopy areas using a high- dynamic-range RGB camera, and a multi-spectral Cropscan radiometer. Further, the RGB camera required images from 12 different angles relative to the rows. In fulfilling these demands an existing robotic platform at Research Center Bygholm, Denmark, was enhanced. A payload software system was developed ensuring a simple and efficient interface between the robotic platform and the multiple sensor systems. The software of the Cropscan Multispectral Radiometer System was also altered to support remote control by the payload software. The robotic system collected data from a full scale field at two occasions.
