Dunn, Mark and Billingsley, John and Finch, Neal (2003) Machine vision classification of animals. In: 10th Annual Conference on Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice, 09-11 Dec 2003, Perth, Australia.
This paper proposes a machine vision system suitable for the automatic classification of animal species. Edge tracking and silhouette encapsulation using s- psi coding is used to match the outline shape of the animal against a normalised library. An experimental system is described, and results from initial tests are reported. The proposed system has great potential for a low-cost, robust system to remotely monitor or classify animals.
