In this study, edge detection and combination of color and shape analyses was utilized to segment images of red apples obtained under natural lighting. Thirty images were acquired from an orchard in order to find an apple in each image and to determine its location. Two algorithms (edge detection-based and colorshape based) were developed to process the images. They were filtered, converted to binary images, and noisereduced. Edge detection based algorithm was not successful, while color-shape based algorithm could detect apple fruits in 83.33% of images.
