My research interest is to utilize sensors and instruments to data-based optimization for production input during agricultural productions to maximize its effectiveness while minimizing its impact to the environment. My current research is stereo vision based variable rate sprayer for specialty crops which make spray decisions after analyzing image data from the stereo vision in real time. A prototype sprayer has developed, and my current focus is to develop algorithms to translate data to knowledge for crop protection product applications. My other research interest is to improve the deposition of crop protection product tank mix on intended targets after spray droplets are discharged from the nozzles to reduce active ingredient uses. Current focus in this research area is to develop a novel technique to high throughput measurements of the spray deposition to analyze the impact of a various ingredients of crop protection products in the deposition.
