The project deals with the detection and identification of pests based 
on single or multiple views or single or stereo sequences. The goal is 
to find suitable features for classification, to investigate various 
classifiers with respect to their discriminative power and efficiency, 
to investigate the possibility to recover the 3D-structure of the 
vegetation in order to deal with occlusions or to accommodate for 
3D-effects in classification. The project concentrates on the 
investigation of the feasibility of automatic procedures and addresses 
sensor selection, software development and experimental validation of 
the developed procedures. The project is performed in close cooperation 
with the Chair for Crop Science.

Financial support:

The 3-year scholarship is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) 
in context of the Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg) 722 
(, Use of /Information 
Technologies for Precision Crop Protection/. The scholarship covers a 
full position. Payment will be according to the DFG guidelines.


The candidate ideally should have a Diploma, Master or PhD in 
Engineering or Computer Science and have experience in Pattern 
Recognition, Image Processing and Computer Vision or Photogrammetry. 
Experience in the classification of plant diseases is acknowledged. 
He/she will be obliged to participate in the Doctoral training and study 
programme /Use of Information Technologies for Precision Crop Protection/.
