Dr.Teera Phatrapornnant granted to join Thai-German S&T Cooperation Research Mobility Scheme Phase III

Dr. Teera Phatrapornnant, NECTEC Researcher and Head of Machine Vision Laboratory, Advanced Automation and Electronics Research Unit, has been granted to join Thai–German S&T Cooperation Research Mobility Scheme Phase III with the topic of “Smartphone and Low-cost Applications for Plant Phenotyping and Digital Agriculture (Sapphire)”. The project is responsible by researchers of NECTEC together with German partner from FZ (Forschungszentrum Jülich) – IBG2 or FZ-IBG2. The objectives of this project aim to identify concept and common needs for smartphone-based applications for acquisition of plant phenology and plant tissue-specific data, to evaluate the potential of specific applications using low-cost and easily distributed sensor, to establish a cooperating, multi-disciplinary team encompassing all involved specialists and to enable 2 exchange activities between 2 partners to demonstrate activities of the developed concept of the project.

Within 1 year period, 3 researchers from each organization will get financial support to exchange their activities within the maximum visit of 90 days.
