Lecture on Remote Sensing of the Physical Qualities of Fruits

September 2013

IEEE Geoscience and remote sensing (GRSS) - Gujarat, IEEE MTT/AP- Gujarat, IndianSociety of Geomatics (ISG) - Ahmedabad Chapter and CEPT University organized an invitedlecture on the topic “Remote Sensing of the Physical Qualities of Fruits” delivered by Dr. MonaiKrairiksh affiliated with King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology, Ladkrabang, Bangkok 10520,Thailand. The main purpose to organize this event in India was because the climatic conditionof Thailand and India matches and both are having high fruit production. The main objectivewas to detect the ripen fruits so as to avoid it from being rotted. He included both thetechniques of post-harvest and pre-harvest. This technique will be beneficial for fruit merchantsand they will be saved from heavy losses.
