Farming Machinery - Efficient Plant Protection with Machine Vision

Crop protection is an important part of plant cultivation to ensure high yields and best quality. Increasing resistance and ever stricter regulations for traditional protection methods are challenges that must be met - today and in the future. Therefore, it is necessary that crop protection products are used particularly efficiently. With the help of industrial image processing, it is possible to distinguish between crops and weeds in real time during the spraying process and thus apply the crop protection agent precisely.

As shown in the video an industrial camera (multispectral image acquisition) is mounted on the sprayer and takes pictures of the plantation. The camera sends the data to an embedded device. This device runs machine vision software by MVTec and controls the application. The software uses deep-learning-based object detection to identify weeds between crops and gives the system the impulse to precisely apply the herbicide to the identified weeds.
