Thesis Topic/Title:
Tractor automation – infield human interaction


Automated tractors are the near future and related technologies have been wide researched for the last few years. Machine vision based navigation is an emerging research filed especially for tractors in agriculture farms where unexpected obstacles (humans, animals etc.) are very common. This project mainly focus on using LiDAR, depth camera and other vison based sensing techniques for developing and optimising algorithms for automated navigation of tractors in the field for expected and unexpected obstacles.
