Sensors and sensing technologies for effective land management: production agriculture and the environment
NRN-LCEE Research Development Fund funded workshop
29 June 2016, Bangor University
Dave Chadwick, Bangor University
- What things dare we attempt to sense and how do we optimise sensor function?
Toby Mottram, eCow
- How might we link sensors, systems and networks for best effect?
Bruce Grieve, University of Manchester
- How much can we sense beneath our feet (Rhizosphere-plot scale)?
Rory Shaw, Bangor Univerity
- What is the future of whole-farm – smart agriculture sensing (field-farm scale)?
Saverio Romeo, Beecham Research
- How do we capitalise on real-time data (M2M, IoT approaches)?
Gordon Blair, Lancaster University
- What can we tell from the air (farm-landscape scale)?
Dan Morton, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology
- What sensors work for livestock now and where might we go?
Mark Rutter, Harper Adams University
- Example of livestock-borne sensor use / virtual fences
Tony Waterhouse, Scotland's Rural College
- How do we maximize tag capacity and deal with big data?
Mark Holton, Swansea University
- How far can we push our understanding of animal behaviour, ‘opinion’ and ‘state’ with sensors?
Rory Wilson, Swansea University
