Fruit shape estimation from stereoscopic images in real time

    Project: Research

    Project Description

    This research aims at improving the process of automatic fruit inspection and classification. Existing stereo vision algorithms to extract depth information are unsuitable for real time calculations. The increasing complexity and reducing cost of field programmable gate arrays along with the development of algorithms that have a high degree of parallelism and locality has created the possibility of performing the calculations required in real time. This project aims to investigate the suitability of the various stereo vision algorithms available in the literature for real time hardware implementation with application to fruit shape estimation in real time.
