Event Details

The workshop will feature a range of speakers from the agri-food and imaging sectors, presenting examples of ongoing projects. The workshop will address the needs of the arable, horticultural and livestock industries, as well as the food processing and manufacturing sector. 


The agri-food sector faces many challenges, particularly the need to increase production to feed a growing population whilst limiting environmental impacts. The decreasing cost of cameras and sensors as well as a huge increase in computing power means that new imaging technologies are now viable options for the agri-food sector. These emerging imaging technologies will add value across the sector, from optimising inputs using precision agriculture to increasing the efficiency of food manufacturing lines.


With this in mind, the KTN is organising this workshop to bring together experts from the imaging and agri-food sectors to discuss industry needs, technological gaps and potential opportunities for emerging imaging technologies in agri-food.


Confirmed speakers at this event include:

  • Prof Simon Pearson – University of Lincoln (Chair)
  • Dave Ross – Agri-EPI Centre
  • Dr Martin Whitworth – Campden BRI
  • Mark Jarman – Satellite Applications Catapult
  • Dr Wenhao Zhang – University of the West of England
  • TBC – Gooch and Housego
  • Dr Dorian Parker – M Squared Lasers
  • Dr Carol-Anne Duthie – SRUC
  • Dr Katherine Lutteroth – BBSRC
  • Dr Simon Plant – Innovate UK
