Flexible Monitoring of (Greenhouse) crops; one Wageningen Robotics (KB-30-003-019)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


This project has the aim to reduce resource spoilage by developing autonomous and flexible qualityassessment

systems. Using state-of-the-art technologies in machine learning, we will develop

methods that learn to translate raw sensor information into quality aspects of greenhouse crops.

The system can be trained from a number of examples, which can be presented to the system by the

crop expert. We will focus on four types of sensor data; NIR spectra, RGB images, RGB-D (depth)

images and hyperspectral images. The first holds spectral information, the second and third spatial

and 3D information and the fourth spectral and spatial information combined. The developed

methods will be tested on a number of case studies; detection of thrips in chrysanthemum,

detection of botrytis in cyclamen, detection of powdery mildew in tomato and chrysanthemum, as

well as common quality features in tomato crops.
