A University of Nebraska-Lincoln team led by Mehmet Can Vuran is exploring how best to commercialize a new wireless sensor system that will help farmers better manage irrigation water applications to conserve water, reduce costs and improve crop yields. The commercialization team, from left, includes: computer scientist Stephen Reichenbach, doctoral student Xin Dong, Vuran and biological systems engineer Suat Irmak. Vuran developed the wireless sensor system with support from NSF through CAREER, Innovation Corps, SBIR Phase 1 and CyberSEES Type 1 awards.
