It remains a challenge to classify different categories of fruits because of the similarities of shape, color, and texture among them. We presented a novel approach in order to classify fruits accurately and efficiently based on computer vision techniques. We obtained the coefficients using fractional Fourier transform. The entropies extracted from the coefficients were fed into the classifier as the features. A multilayer perceptron optimized by an improved hybrid genetic algorithm was used as the classifier. The experiment results on 1653 fruit images demonstrated that the proposed method achieved an overall accuracy of 89.59%, which was superior to the state-of-the art approaches. Our method is effective in identifying fruit cagegories.
