dc.description.abstractDriverless farm equipment is becoming more and more attractive to today’s farmers as they battle short growing seasons and rising fuel and equipment costs. Dr. Mehran Mehrandezh has his eye on improving crop yields through the use of automation and algorithms, focussing his efforts on making the entire tillage process more precise. Mehrandezh, a Professor of Industrial Systems Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, says faster and more precise farming can also reduce the carbon footprint of the farming machinery by consuming less fuel. He and his research team are developing sensors that can be mounted on farm implements.en_US
