Established in 2008 by joining researchers from different institutions, countries and continents with the aim of enhancing CIGR actions for the collaboration between institutions, enterprises and individuals in the field of computer vision and image analysis in agriculture. The WG is open to all researches interested in optical systems for agricultural products and processes. This technology has grown considerably in recent years due to the increase of their technological capacity and lower prices of equipment.
These systems allow the automation of tasks and analysis in regions of the electromagnetic spectrum that are invisible to the human eye, are capable of monitoring from far distances, can penetrate into the tissues and allow inspecting products at a high speed that would otherwise not be possible. There is a need to develop new methods, systems and algorithms capable of deal with the large amount of information provided by these systems, and to create innovative developments that can be transferred to the industry.
