abstract
Machine vision evolved considerably in the last decade. The positive price evolution and robustness of the cameras combined with the high accuracy have led to their widespread use in different agricultural sectors. Our consortium presented different image based methods to measure the speed and direction of fertiliser grains. Currently, a first attempt to extract 3D-information with an image acquisition system based on stereoscopy is presented. The system uses previously developed and tested 2-D techniques. Depending on the imposed vertical angle, the first stereovision system showed an average error between 0,1% and 2,2% for measuring distance and height difference between grains. The second set-up showed promising results when comparing the measured values to the imposed velocity. Preliminary tests indicated that the designed stereovision system is capable of performing high speed 3D measurements on grains. More tests and research are necessary to further develop this first approach to a useful tool for spreading.
