Uti­li­zing a LiDAR laser scan­ner in fruit trees

In con­trast with ara­ble crops, peren­nial trees are gro­wing in 3D. The recent advan­ce­ment of 3D sen­sors and tech­ni­ques allow the moni­to­ring of tree and fruit growth with high spa­tio-tem­po­ral reso­lu­tion. This pre­sen­ta­tion will ana­lyse how LiDAR sen­sors can be uti­li­zed in hor­ti­cul­ture and which tech­ni­ques can be app­lied to extract 3D plant infor­ma­tion that could be explo­i­ted by the farmer.

Mr. Tsoulias holds a BSc in Agri­cul­tu­ral Engi­nee­ring from Agri­cul­tu­ral Uni­ver­sity of Athens and a MSc in Pre­cision Far­ming from Har­per Adams Uni­ver­sity (UK). Bes­i­des his stu­dies he has worked as a rese­arch sci­en­tist at Har­per Adams Uni­ver­sity on deve­lo­ping soft­ware for 2D LIDAR scan­ners to obtain data in 3 dimen­si­ons in real time. At pre­sent he is working as post-doc­to­ral rese­ar­cher in SHEET pro­ject in ATB, uti­li­zing LiDAR sen­sor and ther­mal camera for pre­dic­ting sunburn on app­les and cher­ries in field conditions.

This talk will be held in English.
