Image Processing with Applications in Agriculture
Topic Overview:

One of the ways in which agricultural production automation is going to be is to use video data obtained by CCTV. Those interested in this topic will work on an interesting project in which we try to develop software for recognizing farm animals (and other objects) in a particular picture. Based on this information we want to control the processes in the stable automatically. Given the wide range of this issue, it is possible to modify the topic of the work according to the student's deeper interest.

Task:

Trainee’s task will be to try developing part of the software for recognizing patterns in a particular picture.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge of programming languages, basic knowledge of image processing (if needed, the trainee will be able to consult with a specialist).

Outcomes:

Outcomes depend on theme: source code, report, literature review, scientific paper…

Notes:

The focus of the work will be specified according to the trainee's interest.

Computer Simulations of Phenomena from Technical or Physical Practice
Topic Overview:

Modern engineering requires precise technology and demands almost no errors in production. Companies and factories face  huge expenses for the testing of invented models or objects. Computer simulation is a great and easy way to improve  technology production and minimalize the issues with real tests.

Task:

Trainee’s task will be to solve the selected phenomenon from agricultural or technical practice using computer modeling  methods. Student can follow up on the some of the topics solved at Faculty of Agriculture USB (modelling of air flow in an  environment of stables, mechanical stress of bodies, material fatigue and others) or to create their own simulation with regard  to their specialization or interests.

Requirements:

Advanced computer skills.

Outcomes:

Outcomes depend on theme: computer model, report, literature review, scientific paper…

Notes:

The focus of the work will be specified according to the trainee's interest.
Topic Overview:

Publishing the scientific research paper is the key to success in the academic and scientific society. Well-organized data and results are the first steps to publish innovative papers in decent journals. Such data forms right paper structure and leads to  higher acceptability by journals.

Task:

There is a large amount of experimental data available at the department waiting to be evaluated by appropriate statistical methods, visualization and duplication. Activities: Processing and visualization of experimental data. Analysis of results and their preparation for publication in professional journals.

Requirements:

Good knowledge of working with some data processing programs (eg Excel, MATLAB, Statistica, etc.), basic knowledge of statistics.

Outcomes:

Evaluated data, report, literature review, scientific paper…

Notes:

The focus of the work will be specified according to the trainee's interest.

Literature Review Activities in Agricultural and Food Engineering
Topic Overview:

Every scientific paper begins with the literature overview. Even the first steps with research experiments stand for proper literature research. Worldwide scientific databases contain a huge number of papers that can provide lots of useful information for the literature overview.

Task:

Trainee’s task will be to elaborate a quality literature review of the selected issue and prepare a Journal Paper of the "Overview" type for publishing. Student can select a topic in one of the following areas:
a) image processing;
b) AI in agriculture;
c) computer vision;
d) robotization in agriculture.

Requirements:

Basic skills with text processors (MS Word, LaTeX...)

Outcomes:

Literature review, scientific paper…

Notes:

It is not necessary to have knowledge of writing scientific articles. We will clarify everything. The focus of the work will be specified according to the trainee's interest (It is possible to find another area for preparing lit. review.)
