Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A machine vision system guided precision sprayer was developed and tested. The long term objective of this project was to develop a novel technology to effectively reduce herbicide application amounts for crop field pest control. This research integrated a real-time machine vision sensing system with an automatic herbicide sprayer to create an intelligent sensing and spraying system. Multiple video images were used to cover the target area. To increase the accuracy, each individual nozzle was controlled separately. The integrated system was tested to evaluate the effectiveness and performance of the system under varying field conditions.
