Technological developments are viewed from the point of view of projects that have engaged the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture. Examples include simple vision guidance, shape analysis by simple means and by s-psi encoding of the boundary, the use of DirectX filters for image acquisition and processing and standalone camera hardware including the use of embedded processing power. Even though the projects have ranged much wider than horticulture, may of the techniques can have horticultural applications.
