This work is concerned with a machine vision system for an autonomous vehicle designed to treat horticultural crops. The vehicle navigates by following rows of crop (individual cauliflower plants) that are planted in a reasonably regular array typical of commercial practice. We adopt an extended Kalman filter approach where the observation model consists of a grid which is matched to the crop planting pattern in the perspective view through the vehicle camera. Plant features are extracted by… CONTINUE READING
