  1. 16. Improving Image Based Fruitcount Estimates Using Multiple View-Points

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Datorseende

    Author : Madeleine Stein; [2016]
    Keywords : Computer vision; epipolar geometry; fruit count; fruit yield; mango; mono camera; lidar;

    Abstract : This master-thesis presents an approach to track and count the number of fruit incommercial mango orchards. The algorithm is intended to enable precision agri-culture and to facilitate labour and post-harvest storage planning. READ MORE

  2. 17. Estimations of anthropogenic nutrient flows at the coral reef island Ko Sak, Thailand : A simplified source flow analysis

    University essay from KTH/Industriell ekologi; KTH/Industriell ekologi

    Author : Emelie Lindström; Adam Engström; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : High levels of nutrients in tropical coastal areas is a big problem and poses large threats to coral reefs. Therefore this study will focus on nutrient flows from a source perspective. The aim of this study is to identify and quantify the phosphorus and nitrogen emissions from human activities at the island Ko Sak, Thailand. READ MORE

  3. 18. Fuel Cell for Food Preservation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemivetenskap (CHE)

    Author : Maximilian Spencer; [2016]
    Keywords : food preservation; fuel cell oxygen depletion; proton exchange membrane fuel cells; oxidative food spoilage; Hydrogen fuel cells;

    Abstract : As foodstuffs are being produced, transported and stored in greater quantities than ever before in human history and with an alarming amount of food products being lost to spoilage every year, new, environmentally friendly ways of preserving food products are being actively researched and developed in today’s world. Oxygen is a key pathway towards food decay and destruction, due to its dual roles as a source of respiration for the multitude of microorganisms that can cause food spoilage and through direct destruction through oxidation reactions within food products that cause oxidative deterioration.

  4. 19. Estimating Light Interception of Orchard Trees Using LiDAR and Solar Models

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Reglerteknik

    Author : Örn Samuel; [2016]
    Keywords : agriculture; lidar; light interception; fruit; orchard; trees;

    Abstract : In farming of fruit trees it is of interest to know the light interception of the trees. Therefore, in this project, a geometric model of the trees was derived using LiDAR data and this was combined with a sky model to estimate the light interceptionof orchard trees. READ MORE

  5. 20. Degradation and restoration method interact to affect the performance of planted seedlings in tropical rainforest restoration : evidence from plant functional traits

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Julia Mellåker; [2016]
    Keywords : Dipterocarpaceae; enrichment planting; INIKEA; secondary rainforest; hjälpplantering; sekundär regnskog;

    Abstract : A common action to improve or save biodiversity in the tropics is restoration of degraded rainforest. To understand the complex ecological structures of the forest and adapt the restoration actions after them, studies have focused on characterizing species with functional traits. READ MORE
