This paper presents an integrated system for chrysanthemum bud detection that can be used to automate labour intensive tasks in floriculture greenhouses. The system will detect buds and their 3D location in order to guide a robot arm to perform selective pruning tasks on each plant. The detection algorithm is based on using radial hough transform. Testing on several samples showed promising results.
