Automation for bio-production [Lecture notes]
Henten, E.J. van \ Willigenburg, L.G. van \ Bakker, T. \ 2008
agriculture - automation - robots - automatic guidance - driverless vehicles - horticulture - sensors - machine vision - precision agriculture

Agriculture is challenged to overcome increasing labour costs, decreasing availability of labour and increasing demands concerning precision, product quality and reduction of environmental and animal load. As can be seen in Western Europe an important solution is to replace human labour by automation in areas such as arable farming, livestock farming, and horticulture. Examples of automation are milking robots, GPS steering of tractors, autonomous vehicles and automated harvesting in greenhouse production. The design and implementation of such automated systems is expected to be at the heart of agricultural innovation the next decades. The guideline for this course is taken from the robotics domain and is stated as: 'Robotics is the intelligent transformation of perception into mechanical action'. To realize these transformations sensors, actuators, manipulators, vehicles, computers and decision systems, are important components. These components and how they may be applied to design automated agricultural systems constitute the contents of this course.

Engineering 2 : electronica [Lecture notes]
Asselt, C.J. van \ Ooteghem, R.J.C. van \ Wageningen Universiteit \ 2015
electronics - electrical engineering

This course is the second part of introduction to engineering. In this part there is a module on CAD (Computer Aided Design), electronics, and lectures and tutorials on mechanics. In the CAD module the students learn the basic principles of CAD. It starts with making hand sketches of simple technical objects and continues with the learning of a 3D modelling programme (AutoCAD Inventor). In this programme parts of technical systems are modelled and technical drawings documented. Finally, calculations on mechanical stress will be done. The module electronics gives an introduction to the basics of modern electronics. From the basic elements (resistors, capacitors and coils) circuits will be built and analyzed with a focus on the frequency response. The theory of diodes and transistors will be explained and tested in practice. All this being the start of more advanced elements like the operational amplifier in both feedback and non-feedback applications. Furthermore the production process (steps and techniques) of integrated circuits (chips) will be presented. In the course students will also learn about basic digital circuits (gates, flip-flops) forming the fundamental base of modern digital computers.

Engineering design methods : strategies for product design [Monograph] - 4th [improved, rev. and updated] ed
Cross, N. \ cop. 2008
design - structural design - construction technology - product development - new products - textbooks

This is an integrated textbook that presents specific methods within an overall strategy from concept to detail design. It also outlines the nature of design thinking, and sets it within broader contexts of product development and design process management.This revised fourth edition promotes a flexible approach to the design process, provides explicit, step-by-step advice on how to implement several separate design methods that have been shown to be of value in both education and practice, contains new case studies and examples from industry that further broaden the scope of the book from engineering design into product design, includes a significant new chapter presenting user scenarios; a procedure for investigating potential product user wants and needs, that culminates in a design brief identifying an opportunity for developing a new product concept, features a book companion website with powerpoint slides for instructors.

Livestock technology [Lecture notes]
Groot Koerkamp, P.W.G \ Snoek, J.W. \ Pompe, J.C.A.M. \ Vroegindeweij, B.A \ Vries, J.W. de \ [2014]
livestock farming - animal welfare - animal behaviour - emission - automation - precision agriculture - agricultural engineering - automatic control - systems analysis - stall climate - agrotechnology - control systems

Developments in livestock production systems are driven by (internal) farm and sector opportunities, market & consumer demands, national and international legislation and societal issues, as covered by the sustainability concept People, Planet & Profit. This course focuses on technological aspects and processes in livestock production systems and on development and application of new technology to support realization of sustainable animal production systems. In this course these systems are mainly delimited to on farm production and directly related links in the food chain. The interactions and relations between the biological entities (at animal level), technological artifacts and human management play a central role. The course deals with technological aspects of five sustainability themes and with three engineering themes. The five sustainability themes are animal welfare (animal needs & surroundings), animal health, and environment (gaseous emissions and animal waste handling), food safety, and food quality. The three engineering themes are 1) building physics and indoor climate 2) mechanics of building constructions (statics) and 3) farm management and logistics. For each theme current systems and technology are described, in depth knowledge on the technology is presented, management and control of related problems are dealt with as well as the latest innovations in each area. Typical examples of subjects are 1) constraints for the design of sustainable systems including societal demands, 2) sensors and information technology for quality monitoring, product processing, milking and feeding systems, 3) the concept of precision livestock farming, 4) management of the aerial environment of animals, 5) minimization of emission hazardous gases, and waste processing.
