Abstract

In this paper, we present a comparative study of two electromagnetic-based sensing modalities for the purpose of detecting red palm weevils in date palm trees. While the first sensing modality relies on infrared exposure, the other technique focuses on the application of microwaves for sensing purposes of red palm weevils. In the first methodology, experimental trials were carried out and the second study focused on the development of numerical models based on electromagnetic sensors for early detection of red palm weevils. The microwave sensing used electromagnetic sensors of microstrip patch antenna array that was designed at the 2.45 GHz ISM-band. Based on the results, both sensing techniques are considered fast detection means for the early detection of red palm weevils' activities (movement, eating, ⋯ etc.).
