An Enhanced Technique for Classification of Fruits using Shape Color and Texture Features

Yashpal Jitarwal, Tabrej Ahamad Khan, Pawan Mangal


In earlier times fruits were sorted manually and it was very time consuming and laborious task. Human sorted the fruits of the basis of shape, size and color. Time taken by human to sort the fruits is very large therefore to reduce the time and to increase the accuracy, an automatic classification of fruits comes into existence.To improve this human inspection and reduce time required for fruit sorting an advance technique is developed that accepts information about fruits from their images, and is called as Image Processing Technique.
