Abstract:


In this paper, we propose a new approach of plant classification based on leaves recognition. The approach uses the dendritic cell algorithm, from the danger theory, as a classifier and the wavelet transform as a features space. The dendritic cell algorithm is a new immune inspired paradigm. It has demonstrates a potential proprieties as a classifier. As for the wavelet transform, it provides a powerful tool to capture localized and attractive features for texture classification. The experimental results about the data set leaf images show that the method is feasible and it gives an interesting recognition rate.
