Paper Abstract

The Gradient Vector Flow (GVF) snake was used for color fruit shape detection, which is proposed by Chengxiang Xu, this snake has two well properties than traditional snake: large capture range and its ability to move into boundary concavities. Indicator and morphological operation before applying GVF snake firstly preprocess the color fruit image. In our experiments, we compared the detection result of this approach to traditional snake and traditional edge operators and it is obvious that the performance of this approach is better; the boundaries detected by GVF snake are thin and smooth, which are very important for fruit size detection and shape classification.
