Computer Image Analysis to Locate Targets for an Agricultural Robot. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A real-time computer vision system has been implemented on a prototype field robotic harvester. Gray-level image processing algorithm and routines have been developed and integrated into a real-time pipeline system to locate melons in the field. 80% of fruits were successfully detected. Preliminary investigation of applying Infra-Red imaging to detect melons was performed.
