Imaging and Sensing (IS) is one of the core research areas within the Data Science Research Unit (DSRU) at CSU.

The group focus is to design, model, develop or apply image processing, computer vision, computational intelligence and machine learning techniques, wireless sensor network, and the Internet of Things (IoT) towards solving real-world problems in various domains, including agriculture, viticulture, environment, and law enforcement.

The expertise of this research group spans

  • Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing
  • Information System and mathematical and statistical modelling
  • Agriculture and Environment science

We are collaborating and working closely with academics, researchers and industry partners from the CSU Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation, Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS), National Wine and Grape Industry Centre (NWGIC), NSW Department of Primary Industry (DPI), and Agriculture Victoria, and international law enforcement agencies.

The goals of the group are as follows

  1. Development of technology for Precision agriculture, winery science, land and water environmental science, law enforcement
  2. Foster a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to research into image processing, computer vision, machine learning, data analysis, mathematics, statistics or agri-engineering
  3. Explore research funding sources to increase group productivity and collaboration
  4. Build national and international research reputation
  5. Supervising and training research higher degree students including Ph.D., DIT and Honours students.
