Paper Abstract

The automatic segmentation and recognition of greenhouse crop is an important aspect in digitized facility agriculture. Crop stems are closely related with the growth of the crop. Meanwhile, they are also an important physiological trait to identify the species of plants. For these reasons, this paper focuses on the digitization process to collect and analysis stems of greenhouse plants (tomatoes). An algorithm for automatic stem detection and extraction is proposed, based on a cheap and effective stereo vision system—Kinect. In order to demonstrate the usefulness and the potential applicability of our algorithm, a virtual tomato plant, whose stems are rendered by segmented stem texture samples, is reconstructed on OpenGL graphic platform.
