Paper Abstract

An important step for the classification of plants in organic farming is the separation of the objects. In our approach a 3D camera will be used for this task. One problem is that most of the available 3D sensors are not suitable due to their bad resolution, low-speed and high costs. The Kinect II is an affordable alternative but designed for another workspace. In this paper it is shown why a 3D sensor is required for the separation of objects in organic farming and how the modification of a Kinect II 3D camera increases the range resolution to solve the given problem.
