报告内容简介

In this seminar, Dr. Karkee will first discuss why precision and automated/robotic systems are essential for the future of farming (Ag 4.0). He will then summarize past efforts and current status of tree fruit harvesting research around the world followed by an introduction of the novel approaches in machine vision, end-effector and manipulation technologies developed in his lab for automated apple harvesting. The seminar will also introduce a few other research projects at Dr. Karkee’s lab including UAS-based bird deterrence in fruit crops, robotic pruning of fruit trees, and robotic weeding in vegetable crops. Finally, the seminar will provide some thoughts on the current challenges in developing and adopting automated machines in farming operations, and new opportunities and directions.

 Manoj Karkee 简介

Dr. Manoj Karkee is an Associate Professor in the Biological Systems Engineering Department at Washington State University (WSU). He was born in Nepal where he received his undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering. He received his MS from Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand and his PhD in Agricultural Engineering and Human Computer Interaction from Iowa State University. Dr. Karkee leads a strong research program in the area of sensing, machine vision and agricultural robotics. Some of his major research topics include fresh market apple and cherry harvesting, fruit tree and berry bush pruning, weed control in vegetable crops, smart irrigation in perennial crops, and novel applications of UAS in agriculture. He has published widely in such journals as ‘Journal of Field Robotics’, ‘Computers and Electronics in Agriculture’, and ‘Transactions of the ASABE’, and has been an invited speaker at numerous national and international conferences.
