A New Application of Hyperspectral Techniques in Drug Classification
Different from the traditional RGB images, the hyperspectral sensors provide near-infrared signal which is gradually being applied in many fields. In the early days, hyperspectral signals were more commonly used for military purposes, but with the increase in optical spectroscopic technology, hyperspectral instruments were gradually applied to the general public, including medical images, food and agriculture. In the medical field, the hyperspectral signal can be used for public identification of unknown drugs, and after the detection of hyperspectral instruments and algorithms, the medication information is provided to the users. The experimental results show that our proposed method is effective to the drug classification using hyperspectral sensors.
