Towards continuous surveillance of fruit flies using sensor networks and machine vision
Liu, Yuee, Zhang, Jinglan, Richards, Mark A., Pham, Binh L., Roe, Paul, & Clarke, Anthony R. (2009) Towards continuous surveillance of fruit flies using sensor networks and machine vision. In The 5th International Conference on Wireless Communications, Networking and Mobile Computing, 24-26 September 2009, Beijing.
In Australia, the Queensland fruit fly (B. tryoni), is the most destructive insect pest of horticulture, attacking nearly all fruit and vegetable crops. This project has researched and prototyped a system for monitoring fruit flies so that authorities can be alerted when a fly enters a crop in a more efficient manner than is currently used. This paper presents the idea of our sensor platform design as well as the fruit fly detection and recognition algorithm by using machine vision techniques. Our experiments showed that the designed trap and sensor platform is capable to capture quality fly images, the invasive flies can be successfully detected and the average precision of the Queensland fruit fly recognition is 80% from our experiment.
