Project description: 

Swansea University, an internationally recognised academic institution with strong commitments to research and technological innovation, seeks applications for a PhD scholarship funded position to join our rapidly developing Intelligent Robotics Group at the Computer Science Department, Faculty of Science and Engineering. The development of Intelligent Robotics for real-world applications, cutting across the domains of assisted living and modern agriculture, is one of our research group’s goals. An exciting opportunity awaits in our ambitious project “HARVEST”, where we seek to transform global food production systems in the face of impending challenges. At its heart, the project is about developing Vertical Multi-Purpose Farming Systems. From providing cost-effective, year-round agriculture to creating disease-resistant crops and yield prediction using computer vision, the technologies you develop have the potential to shape the future of farming. It becomes the path to devising new vertical agricultural techniques, paving the way for sustainable methodologies in the agriculture sector. Join us and participate in this exciting project. At Swansea University you will do more than just research; at Swansea University you will be positively impacting people’s lives and the environment.
