Title (EN) RECOGNITION OF WEED IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
(FR) RECONNAISSANCE D'UNE MAUVAISE HERBE DANS UN ENVIRONNEMENT NATUREL
Abstract:
(EN) A method (100) for recognizing weed in a natural environment may be provided. A digital image of weed in an early development stage is captured (102) among cultivated crop. Areas with a predefined color and texture specification are contoured (104) defining a boundary contour. The weed is displayed (106) together with a frame and a quality indicator. Moreover, the digital image is stored (110) only if a predefined quality criterion is met. Then, unnecessary color information may be reset (112), the digital image is sent (116) for a further examination, and a weed name of the weed of the captured image and a related probability value indicative of a probability of a match between the weed name and the weed of the captured digital image is received (118).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé (100) de la reconnaissance d'une mauvaise herbe dans un environnement naturel. Une image numérique de la mauvaise herbe à un stade de développement précoce est capturée (102) parmi les cultures cultivées. Des zones comportant une spécification de couleur et de texture prédéfinie sont délimitées (104) pour délimiter un contour. La mauvaise herbe est affichée (106) conjointement avec un cadre et un indicateur de qualité. En outre, l'image numérique est mémorisée (110) uniquement si un critère de qualité prédéfini est satisfait. Ensuite, les informations de couleur inutiles peuvent être réinitialisées (112), l'image numérique est envoyée (116) pour examen supplémentaire et un nom de mauvaise herbe de la mauvaise herbe de l'image capturée et une valeur de probabilités associée indiquant une probabilité de correspondance entre le nom de la mauvaise herbe et la mauvaise herbe de l'image numérique capturée est reçue (118).
