The following samples show some promising results of an automated weed instance detector that works in cereal fields and is able to distinguish monocot (red) from dicot (blue) weeds. It utilizes the focal-loss introduced by Facebook AI Research (FAIR), which balance the error contribution based on how easy detectable they are.
Even though the final aim is to classify each weed instance, it is sometimes not possible due to the small size of the weeds. In this case a mono/dicot discrimination is still valuable to determine a suitable weed control strategy.
