Thesis Topic/Title
Practical Applications of Machine Vision and Control Theory

Description

Through the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture there are opportunities to identify projects that have practical applications – and the possibility of external funding.
An attractive area is the concept of small autonomous robots, performing tasks such as weeding or planting with the aid of low cost machine vision, exploiting computing platforms such as the Android.
Other areas can include mobile applications, perhaps legged, such as the ‘Turtle’ proposed for marine inspection.
A technique has recently developed for a fast-model predictive controller, simple enough that it can be embodied in a microcontroller for near-optimal operation. This can be taken further in theory or in a practical application.
