An Agricultural Spraying Robot Based on the Machine Vision

  author={Zhongrui Wang and Zhongcheng Wang},
Accurate target spraying is a key technology in modern and intelligent agriculture. For solv ing the problems of pesticide waste and poisoning in the spraying process, a spraying robot based on binocular machine vision was proposed in this paper. A digital signal processor was used to identify and locate tomatoes as well as to control the nozzle spray. A stereoscopic vision model was established, and color normalization, 2G-R-B, was adopted to implement background segmentation between plants… 

Figures from this paper




A system was developed for precision, ground-based application of foliar sprays to rows of small plants. The system consisted of a machine-vision guidance system that positioned spray nozzles

Shape features for identifying young weeds using image analysis

Shape features that best distinguished these plants were aspect and first invariant central moment (ICM1), which classified 60 to 90% of the dicots from the monocots, which could be very useful in the future design of advanced spot spraying applications.

Virtual manipulator-based binocular stereo vision positioning system and errors modelling

Results of simulation in VE and the experiment showed that the vision positioning method was feasible for positioning in the field environment and can be applied to control robot operation and to correct the positioning errors in real-time, especially to the long-range precision modelling and error compensation of robots.

Electronic Image Analysis of Crop Residue Cover on Soil

ABSTRACT CLASSIFICATION procedures for using both black-and-white and color imaging systems were developed and tested for determination of percent residue cover on the soil surface from video and

Aerial electrostatic-charged sprays for deposition and efficacy against sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) on cotton.

The results reported here suggest that the potential exists for obtaining increased efficacy against whiteflies using an electrostatic spray charging system, and that additional research will be required to improve charge-to-mass (Q/M) ratio in order to increase deposition of pest control materials to the lower surfaces of cotton leaves where the whiteflies reside.
