Descripción
Active optical sensing (laser and light curtain transmission) devices mounted on a mobile platform can correctly detect and localize trees. To conduct an evaluation and comparison of the different sensors used, an optical encoder wheel was used for vehicle odometry and provided a measurement of the linear displacement of the prototype vehicle along a row of tree seedlings as a reference for each sensor measurement recorded. Field trials were conducted on in a juvenile tree nursery with one-year-old grafted almond trees at the Sierra Gold Nursery, Yuba City, CA, United States. Through these tests and subsequent data processing, each sensor was individually evaluated to characterize their reliability as well as their advantages and disadvantages for the proposed task. These results will help in the selection of the most consistent sensor for the accurate detection and localization of each tree in the nursery, which would allow for the ability to automate labor-intensive tasks, such as weeding, without damaging crops.
