Paper Abstract

In the plant factory of crone seedlings, most of the production processes are highly automated, but the transplanting process of the small seedlings is hard to be automated because the figures of small seedlings are not stable and to handle the seedlings it is required to observe the shapes of the small seedlings. Here, a 3-D vision system for robot to be used for the transplanting process in a plant factory has been introduced. This system has been employed relative stereo method and slit light measuring method and it can detect the shape of small seedlings and decides the cutting point. In this paper, the structure of the vision system and the image processing method for the system is explained.
