The power of one individual may be small, but if we get together then we will be more powerful than expected. So, collaboration is the most important thing, not only in the social activities but also in the academic research. 

Let us enjoy the daily classes or laboratory works together!

Research Theme

1)Applications of image processing technology in agriculture

 Image processing is an effective tool in various fields, and its applications in agriculture include robotics, remote sensing, fruit grading, etc.

2)Non-destructive measurements of agricultural product’s quality

 This topic includes the measurements of agricultural product’s density, firmness, sweetness, optical reflectance and transmission, etc.
