Tomatoes are extremely prone to pathogenic fungi infections. During product storage, inadequate temperature and humidity conditions can create ideal settings for the fungi to germinate. The most fragile parts of the tomatoes are the sepals, especially on their tips, which are the main entrance spots for fungal spores. Segmentation of tomato sepals in hyperspectral images is an essential step in designing automated systems for fungal infection sensitivity assessment. Precise segmentation of sepals could contribute to predictive models for early assessment of the risk of undesired fungal occurrence.
In this study, we analyze the state-of-the-art deep learning architectures for instance segmentation to identify which architecture provides the most precise tomato sepal segmentation in hyperspectral images.
