Scientists have developed an apparatus capable of distinguishing certain vegetables on the field.
A group of British engineers designed a robot that distinguishes between ripe cabbages and carefully cuts them off. This was reported by the Journal of Field Robotics.
According to the results of field tests, the device showed an efficiency of about 85%. It is this proportion of ripe vegetables that it recognized.
Now the agriculture of the entire planet reaches three to four percent of world GDP. Companies are engaged in the development and testing of automated systems for harvesting and other activities within the industry.
The team of engineers led by Fumiya Iida. They created a manipulator on a wheeled platform. Its width is comparable to the width of one bed. The end of the “hand” is crowned with a grip, a knife and a camera. A second lens is mounted at the top of the platform.
Experts assumed to develop only a test version of a potentially massively distributed robot. For this reason, they decided to simplify some elements. For example, the device is on a passive platform, which the operator must manually move.
The robot is able to recognize heads with the help of localization based on the YOLO v3 convolutional neural network. The convolutional neural network technology Darknet Object Classification Network classifies vegetables into four types - ripe, unripe, infected, and the latter is designed to recognize the earth.
For learning the first network, one and a half thousand photos were used, and the second - 665.
