About the Technical University of Crete:
The ELKE / TUC team is involved in the Digital Signal and Image Processing Laboratory with Professor Michalis Zervakis. The Laboratory supports the undergraduate courses of the ‘Digital Signal Processing’, ‘Digital Image Processing’, ‘Mechanical Vision’ and the ‘Pattern Recognition’ postgraduate course at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The research interest in the Display Lab is centered around the areas of Digital Signal Processing (Fourier transform, z transform, filters, sampling, etc.), Digital Image Processing, color reconstruction, image reconstruction with algebraic and stochastic methods, filters, compression) and pattern recognition (clustering, classification, neural systems). The laboratory, through Professor M. Zervakis, has been involved and collaborating continuously since 1997, either as a coordinator or as a partner, with many national and international public and private bodies in the context of research and development projects in the areas of signal processing and image, telecommunication systems, surveillance and environmental monitoring applications, data processing and analysis with modern stochastic and machine learning techniques .
AgroSense is a relatively young but pioneering company in developing and delivering technologically advanced, innovative Wireless Sensor and IoT solutions with a focus on agri-food applications and in particular precision farming and food monitoring.
AgroSense has substantially documented experience in implementing and delivering innovative remote data management solutions related to agriculture (including agronomic, meteorological, environmental, soil). Cooperates with private and public bodies (exemplary Region of Western Macedonia, Agricultural Cooperatives).
AgroSense was created in 2014 with a vision to harness, enhance and promote the international trend for the use of state-of-the-art telemetry technologies in the agri-food sector and in particular in precision agriculture. Thanks to its patented algorithms, it offers competitive products of its own, with a strong know-how advantage.
GeoSense was founded in 2002 and through a network of experienced collaborators, consultants and experts, is involved in the marketing of UAV / UAS (Drones), robotic systems, GPS / GNSS receivers, Surveying & Measuring Equipment, Laser Scanners, Scanners, Scanners, specialized Technical Software and in general applications and solutions in the field of Geoinformatics. It also provides technical-scientific support and specialized services in all kinds of studies and projects related to all the above subjects through its Research and Technology department.
The human resources of the company consist of people with deep knowledge of the subject, with postgraduate degrees and years of experience, as well as specialized associates in programming, telematics, GIS and geoinformatics. In addition, the company has entered into partnerships with Greek and foreign companies to complete its product range.
The company owns and operates two online stores, e-GEOSENSE, at www.e-geosense.gr and MADCOW, at www.madcow.gr where all transactions comply with the worldwide standard for the protection of their information and are covered by the most up-to-date safety standards.
GeoSense is certified and applies quality assurance system according to ELOT EN ISO 9001: 2015 & EN 14001: 2015
