The candidate will initially work on an Enterprise Ireland project that is using novel image and sensor acquisition technologies to capture datasets that are related to grassland qualities and silage processing decisions. These novel image and sensor datasets can then be used in concert with other datasets to estimate the likely condition of the grassland and can thus be used to inform critical decisions as to the best treatments for that cut grass. The captured datasets will be used to build accurate, ergonomic and robust predictive models of silage processing parameters.
