PhD Project

The Development of a Microphotonic Sensor for Plant Discrimination

Research activity includes the development of an automated optical sensor based on spectral reflectance for plant detection and discrimination, testing the performance of this sensor under laboratory and conditions and measurement of the spectral reflectance properties of crops and weeds.
