  • Patent number: 11954875
    Abstract: A method for determining a height of a plant, an electronic device, and a storage medium are disclosed. In the method, a target image is obtained by mapping an obtained color image with an obtained depth image. The electronic device processes the color image by using a pre-trained mobilenet-ssd network, obtains a detection box appearance of the plant, and extracts target contours of the plant to be detected from the detection box. The electronic device determines a depth value of each of pixel points in the target contour according to the target image. Target depth values are obtained by performing a de-noising on depth values of the pixel points, and a height of the plant to be detected is determined according to the target depth value. The method improves accuracy of height determination of a plant.
