Hyperspectral image construction in different spectral bands of tea leafs for identifying the tea type using O-ConvNet-RF model

Likitha Gongalla, Monali Bordoloi


Tea, a commonly consumed beverage, is susceptible to being sold in adulterated or expired forms by third-party vendors. Hyperspectral imaging across different wavelength bands has proven to precisely assess the diverse types of tea and their corresponding financial gains. This study aims to employ a deep learning methodology in conjunction with hyperspectral imaging for efficiently classifying tea leaves. A novel approach is proposed, wherein a waveband convolutional neural network is utilized to generate hyper spectral images of tea leaf samples with enhanced resolution. The model known as optimized-convolutional neural network-random forest O- (ConvNet-RF) demonstrated exceptional performance, achieving high accuracy, impressive recall, F1 score, and notable sensitivity rate, outperforming existing alternative methods. The tea leaf types, namely green, yellow, and black, were accurately identified using a combination of the random forest (RF) model and the O-ConvNet-RF model. The tree-based classification method for the identification of tea leaves demonstrated superior performance as compared to alternative machine learning models. In general, this study presents a successful methodology for the classification of tea leaves, with potential implications for consumer processing and distributor profit analysis.
