High-resolution hyperspectral imaging (HSI) provides an abundance of spectral data for feature analysis in image processing. Usually, the amount of information contained in hyperspectral images is excessive and redundant, and data mining in waveband selection is needed. In applications for fruit and vegetable damage inspection, effective spectral combination and data fusing methods are required in order to select a few optimal wavelengths without losing key information in the original HSI data. In this paper, we present a new method that combines the principal component analysis (PCA) and fishers linear discriminant (FLD) method in a way that maximizes the representation and classification effects on the extracted new feature bands. The method is applied to the detection of chilling injury on cucumbers. Compared with PCA and FLD when used separately, this new integrated PCA-FLD method has achieved results showing better classification performance when tested on different types of samples. This method is ready to be extended to other hyperspectral imaging applications for fruit and vegetable safety and quality inspections.
