Postdoc Edge-AI-assisted Advanced Phenotyping
Postdoc Edge-AI-assisted Advanced Phenotyping
Precision agriculture, which employs sensing technology and artificial intelligence to drive automated agriculture processes and decisions, has demonstrated great potential to improve efficiency, transparency, and productivity in the sector. For example, automated crop monitoring in greenhouses can be carried out collaboratively in real time using handheld devices and autonomous robots to collect data and monitor crop health. While AI has shown promise in many context-sensing tasks, realizing the full potential of AI for automated crop monitoring requires overcoming several research challenges. These include designing computationally efficient deep learning solutions for resource-constrained edge devices and addressing the sparse data problem in training robust monitoring systems.
To develop edge computing and AI-assisted solutions for resource-efficient and robust mobile crop monitoring, the Embedded System Group is offering a 4-year Ph.D. position funded by the Dutch National Growth Fund NXTGEN Hightech program. We are seeking a highly qualified candidate to work on this challenging but impactful project. The candidate will be supervised by Dr. Guohao Lan and Prof. dr. Koen Langendoen and collaborate with the TU Delft AgTech Institute and our industry collaborator Sobolt

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
