MSc Project

Non-destructive mass estimation of Iceberg Lettuce

This project aims to develop a non-destructive mass estimation method for iceberg lettuce based on parameter estimation using the dynamic response of the plant to an input signal. Currently, in industry, the mass of an iceberg lettuce is measured destructively. A non-destructive method for mass estimation would enable measurements to be taken throughout a plant’s life to track growth.

PhD Project

Title to be confirmed.
