Further Development of Image Analysis Systems for Cereal Seed Germination - VS04004

As a continuation of VS04002, the purpose of this phase of research is to complete a robustness check of the system and provide any further processing is required (the core problem are already solved). Specifically work will be focussed towards dealing with “abnormal” seedlings and decision systems. These will involve extraction of decision information from experienced users and devising appropriate decision rules. For this additional features are likely to be evaluated including neural-nets. Critical success factors in the current single-shot mode and scaling up to semi/fully automated mode will be reassessed based on information and a possible visit to the SAC CSG funded seed purity project which is nearing completion.
