Abstract

With the rapid progress of image processing algorithms and computer equipment, the development of machine vision technology in the field of modern agricultural equipment is on the ascendant, and major application results have been obtained in many production links to improve the efficiency and automation of agricultural production. In the face of China, the world’s largest agricultural market, agricultural machine vision equipment undoubtedly has tremendous development potential and market prospects. This paper introduces the research and application of machine vision technology in agricultural equipment in the fields of agricultural product sorting, production automation, pest control, picking machinery, navigation, and positioning, analyzes and summarizes the current problems, and looks forward to the future development trend.
