An Improved YOLOv3-Based Method for Immature Apple Detection
IECE Transactions on Internet of Things | Volume 1, Issue 1: 9-14, 2023 | DOI:10.00000/TIOT.2023.100002
The identification of immature apples is a key technical link to realize automatic real-time monitoring of orchards, expert decision-making, and realization of orchard output prediction. In the orchard scene, the reflection caused by light and the color of immature apples are highly similar to the leaves, especially the obscuration and overlap of fruits by leaves and branches, which brings great challenges to the detection of immature apples. This paper proposes an improved YOLOv3 detection method for immature apples in the orchard scene. Use CSPDarknet53 as the backbone network of the model, introduce the CIOU target frame regression mechanism, and combine with the Mosaic algorithm to impro... More >
