Plant Leaf Classification Using Soft Computing Techniques

C. S. Sumathi and A. V. Senthil Kumar

Abstract—For the existence of human living and development, plants play a crucial part. In order to effectively collect and preserve the genetic resources, the intra- and inter-specific variations must be estimated in proper manner. In plant classification, the leaf shape plays a significant role. In machine intelligence, the most significant part essential for both decision-making and data processing is shape recognition. In this paper, a feed forward neural network is used to automate the leaf recognition for plant classification. The classification accuracy of the proposed method Normalized Cubic Spline Feed Forward Neural Network (NCS – FFNN) is compared with RBF, CART and MLP.

Index Terms—CART, correlation based feature selection, normalized cubic spline feed forward neural network, plant leaf classification, RBF.
