Potato quality detection in China remains at the stage of dependent on human sense organ to identify and judge. According to the characteristics and requests of potatoes’ detection, The original image was disposed fast and smoothly by the median filtering, and based on the threshold segmentation by setting up the values of B(blue), the background was effectively wiped off. By analyzing the circumscription of color characters between the normal and external defect potatoes, the external defect segmentation was realized. This way is simple and feasible.
