Supervisor

Prof. Dr. Arno Ruckelshausen

Project

Sensor Systems/Imaging – Electronics - Agricultural Field Robots

Laboratory Infrastructure:

1-Laboratory for Micro- and Optoelectronics

2- Research Center Intelligent Sensor Systems (ISYS)

3-Competence Center of Applied Agricultural Engineering (COALA)

Development, characterization and application of sensor, imaging and mechatronic systems (such as field robots) in agriculture and horticulture.

Remark: However, other fields of applications for electronics, sensors and mechatronic systems are possible (such as automotive or production)

Website: Hochschule Osnabrück: Labor für Mikro- und Optoelektronik ; COALA

Tasks

 

There is a large number of projects in the technological profiles given above. The focus - depending on the student’s abilities and interests is flexible: Sensor development, image processing, application of imaging systems and sensors, test measurements, algorithms, outdoor field tests, data base, robot navigation and path planning. The publications of the group demonstrate the range of projects, where the lab work can be integrated:

Moreover, there are also getting-started options, particular working with laboratory experiments for the modules “Sensor systems”, “Imaging based sensors”, “Imaging quality assurance” or “Optoelectronics”.

Requirements

Basis knowledge in mathematics, physics, electronics and programming. Interest in one of the technologies or application areas (sensors, imaging/machine vision, electronics, autonomous field robots, agriculture, horticulture). In most cases a background in electrical engineering, computer science or mechatronics nicely fits to the project, however, also students from agriculture or life sciences with a focus on technology are welcome.

Language Skills

English

German: Not necessary, but beneficial.

Other

The work is typically embedded in a research project in cooperation with companies. The student is a member of a team, in most cases with interdisciplinary members.
