    Current uses for sensing equipment in agricultural equipment include: contour ground tracking for height control in combines, grain moisture monitors, and crop yield monitors that use GPS data to map field productivity. Because innovations like these improve reliability and productivity, the use of sensors, and other electronic controls has increased significantly in the second half of the 1990s. ...

    Bread dough mixing is a complex and uncertain process that involves both biological and mechanical polymerization. Although a human expert can control the mixing of dough, it is difficult to model mathematically for use in a conventional control schema. Using the results of the well-known mixograph test for gluten development, expert bakers have observed that the instantaneous mechanical power nee... View full abstract»

    Research has established the basis for several new techniques that should eventually find practical use as new sensors are developed for application in more sophisticated farming, grain marketing, and grain processing arenas. The need for reliable online grain moisture sensors is already apparent in yield monitoring processes on harvesters employing precision farming principles. The ability to mor... View full abstract»

    The bilinear transformation (BLT) is useful to instrumentation and design engineers in many settings. Two examples are: in the modeling of continuous-time (CT) systems via digital computer and in the design of digital infinite-impulse-response filters that are to have response characteristics similar to those of a selected CT filter. An introduction to the BLT is presented along with a discussion ... View full abstract»

    There are two principal methods for measuring flow in irrigation systems: velocity-area methods and hydraulic methods. Each method has its own characteristic flow sensor. It is shown how integrating all parts of a flowmeter into one element allows it to be installed in virtually any channel, natural or artificial. The most important feature of such a design is that it can accurately measure non-ax... View full abstract»
