Thesis Topic/Title:
Multi-sensor based on-the-go automatic N fertilizer application


Site specific fertilizer application not only reduces the harmful effects to the environment but also have economic benefits to the farmers by optimising the amount of fertilizer applied. This project focus on tractor automation with multi sensor hardware and attached sprayer for the development of on the go fertilizer application. Optimization techniques for real-time cloud storage and processing of sensor data for developing the precision map will be evaluated. ROS based CAN bus communication with the tractor and spraying system will be developed and evaluated for the real time fertilizer application.
