Abstract : A computerized coconut tree detection system can help dendrologists and laypersons in identifying coconut trees based on three morphological parameters including height, inclination, and orientation. These three parameters help to determine the health and the nature of growth of coconut trees which influences the design and use of robots for harvesting coconuts. Deep learning is a powerful tool used for feature extraction as it is better in extracting deeper details (features) in an image. In this research work, a new Modified Inception Net based Hyper Tuning Support Vector Machine classification method named MIN-SVM is proposed for coconut tree classification based on three morphological parameters including height, inclination and orientation. The features from the pre-processed coconut tree images were extracted using four distinct Convolutional Neural Network models including Visual Geometry Group, Inception Net, ResNet, and MIN-SVM. These extracted features were then classified using a Machine Learning model named Support Vector Machine (SVM). The MIN-SVM have achieved a remarkable accuracy of 95.35 percent as contrasted to Visual Geometry Group (91.90%), Inception Net (81.66%), and ResNet (71.95%). The features extracted from Modified Inception Net fitted good with SVM classifier. Experimental results show that MIN-SVM can be powerful computerized automated system to identify coconut trees based on height, inclination, and orientation.
