Therefore, color evaluation of apples was achieved by analyzing the RGB value of each cherry tomato. A total of nine features were extracted from one cherry tomato, because three images are obtained from each cherry tomato. PCA is a linear, unsupervised, and pattern recognition technique used for analyzing, classifying, and reducing the dimensionality of numerical datasets in a multivariate problem. This method permits extraction of useful information from the data, and exploration of the data structure, the relationship between objects, the relationship between objects and variables, and the global correlation of the variables.

Different feature sets including four, five, and nine features were also tested to find out the best classifier and feature set combination for an optimal classification success. The effects of using different feature sets and classifiers on classification performance were investigated. 2 The Hardware The lighting and image acquisition system were designed to be adapted on an existing single row grading machine (prototype from Jiangsu University, China). 10. The lighting box is 1000 mm in length and 1000 mm in width.

Therefore, an image processing algorithm was developed to characterize objectively the apple shape to identify different grading. Here, we introduced a Fourier expansion for shape feature extraction. Horizontal line image scanning and detection of the minimum and maximum x coordinate at each yth row resulted in about 1000 edge points. 8b. For the boundary of an apple in an image, the most important information is the positions of the pixels that constitute the boundary. Other information, such as the brightness of the boundary pixels can be ignored.
