Abstract

A Hough transform-based computer algorithm was developed to extract shoot stems as straight lines in a micropropagated Stage 2 sugarcane shoot clump image. Compared with the shoot identification algorithms developed in previous research, this algorithm had a higher shoot identification ratio and was more robust to noise in the image. The algorithm was tested on a vision-guided micropropagated Stage 2 sugarcane shoot separation mechanism. With the Hough transform-based shoot identification algorithm, a real time shoot separation method was presented. Tests showed that more than 80% of the shoots were separated and transplanted successfully by the mechanism.
