Application of Antennas and Propagation in Fruit Classification

Prof. Dr. Monai Krairiksh, IEEE Fellow
King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Thailand

Abstract: Fruits are globally consumed and need more and more quality control. South Asia is one of largest fruit producers and quality improvement is important for competition in the world market. This talk will review application of Antennas and Propagation in fruit classification. The tropical fruits such as durian, orange, pomelo, mangosteen, and mango will be addressed.

Biography: Monai KRAIRIKSH was born in Bangkok, Thailand. He received the B.Eng., M.Eng. and D.Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Thailand in 1981, 1984, and 1994, respectively. He was a visiting research scholar at Tokai University in 1988 and at Yokosuka Radio Communications Research Center, Communications Research Laboratory (CRL) in 2004. He joined the KMITL and is currently a Professor at the Department of Telecommunication Engineering. He served as the Director of the Research Center for Communications and Information Technology during 1997-2002. Dr. Krairiksh was the chairman of the IEEE MTT/AP/Ed joint chapter in 2005-2006. He served as the General Chairman of the 2007 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference, and the 2017 International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation. He was the President of the Electrical Engineering/Electronics, Computer, Telecommunications and Information Technology Association (ECTI) in 2010-2011 and was an editor-in-chief of the ECTI Transactions on Electrical Engineering, Electronics, and Communications. He was a Senior Research Scholar of the Thailand Research Fund in 2005 and 2008 and a Distinguished Research Scholar of the National Research Council of Thailand. He served as a distinguished lecturer of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society during 2012-2014, associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation during 2014-2019, and administrative committee of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society during 2018-2020. His research interests are in antennas and propagation in agricultural applications.


Accelerating Industry Advancement

Dr. Doug Baney, IEEE Fellow
Corporate Director of Education – Keysight Technologies

Abstract: Doug Baney will discuss some of the latest electronic and photonic test advances that accelerate industrial R&D breakthroughs, and how educational institutions can provide needed skills to industry. Topics will include 5G over-the-air (OTA) antenna evaluation, high-speed photonics communications test, and advances in industry-ready education curriculum.

Biography: Doug Baney received Ph.D. from ParisTech, MS-ECE from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the BS-EE from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, California. He has served in various research roles in the areas of photonics and millimeter waves in HP Labs, Agilent Labs, and as a senior director in Keysight Laboratories. He also served as Emerging Markets Manager in Keysight’s Digital and Photonic Center of Excellence. He has authored or co-authored more than 70 publications and holds a similar number of patents. He was General Co-Chair of OFC and of OAA and currently serves on the OFC Budget Committee and is a Fellow of the IEEE.
Beginning November 1st 2018, Doug assumed the role of the newly-created Corporate Director of Education responsible for global educational programs and strategy.
