The objective of this study was to develop an automatic guidance system with a crop row sensor.
The crop row sensor consisted of the CCD camera and the image-processing algorithm. This
sensor would be applied to the automatic guidance system for the weeding cultivator. In this
report, the performance of the developed sensor and the control system of the crop row following
