Abstract

Small robots operating between crop rows need another guidance system than existing guidance systems for larger equipment. Some experiments were done to detect crop rows and to track the motion of the vehicle. Crop row detection was based on excessive green. Motion tracking was based on dynamic template matching. The applied methods have good perspectives although improvements are still necessary. The most important are combining information from several consecutive images and using information from the images itself to determine the required parameter values for dynamic template matching
