＜About awarded research＞
The awarded paper "Measurement Depth Selectable Water Level Sensor Using Capacitance and Reflection Time Measurement" introduced a water level sensor that is designed to reduce labor cost for water level management in paddy fields.The water level sensor can measure water levels through capacitive sensing. Moreover, if users want to expand the measurement range,the sensor has a time domain reflectometry module with parallel lines transmission line and it can be leveraged to enable adjustable measurement range. These features should contribute to delivering practical water level sensors for various purposes.
＜Comments & future plan＞
IoT technologies are considered a key technology to reduce labor costs and improve productivity in agriculture.We will continue working on practical research which will help farmers in the future.
