The University of Tennessee Sensors and Controls Laboratory is a team of scientists and engineers dedicated to development, evaluation, and integration  of new sensing and control technologies in agricultural and biological systems.  Our overall mission is two-fold:  (1) Improve profitability of agricultural production systems, and (2) Increase effectiveness   of natural resource utilization and conservation practices.


Our team works in the following areas:

  • Computer systems for spatial data analysis, signal processing, and system design.

  • Control systems for precision placement of crop inputs and vehicle guidance.

  • Machine tools for prototype development and printed circuit board fabrication.

  • Sensors for agricultural machinery.

  • Systems for monitoring biological activity and plant health.
