In order to ensure the food supply of the world's population in the face of limited natural resources and increasingly occurring weather extremes affecting harvests, it is essential to further develop cultivation methods to improve their resource and energy usage and efficiency. The aim of the research project (with industrial participation) is the optimal feedback control of the growth of agricultural plants and their complex dynamic interactions with the production conditions (e.g. atmosphere, light spectra, nutrient solutions, humidity, ...) in a controlled production environment. For this purpose, model- and data-based predictive controls will be developed and tested in real experiments, among others. Artificial intelligence methods will be used to predict quality parameters etc.
- planning and evaluation of test series on growth processes in controlled production environments
- modeling and analysis under different production conditions
- development of model- and data-based control methods including theoretical analyses of the properties of these methods
- application and development of artificial intelligence methods for forecasting and prediction
- publications of research results in international journals and presentations at international conferences
- carrying out internal professorship tasks as well as the supervision of students in the project
The tasks will also depend on the individual interests and the overall composition of the project team.
