Acquirement of Melon Morphologies through High-Precision and Non-Destructive Vision Measurement
For the purpose of measuring the micro changes of morphological parameters of melon organ, this paper put forth a new algorithm based on mathematical morphology and spline interpolation to obtain the phenotype information of melon such as area and horizontal and vertical diameter and developed a high-resolution non-destructive and contactless measuring system based on vision processing to get the projection area of melon and its diameter. The algorithm is easy to carry out, and can get more ideal edge information than some traditional algorithms. It supplies theoretical basis for revealing the combined response relationship and temporal and spatial variation character between melon morphologies and key environmental factors.
