We present a systematic approach for creating digital twins of cherry trees in orchards as part of the project “For5G: Digital Twin”. We aim to develop a basic concept for 5G applications in orchards using a mobile campus network. Digital twins monitor the status of individual trees in every aspect and are a crucial step for the digitalization of processes in horticulture. Our framework incorporates a transformation of photometric data to a 3D reconstruction, which is subsequently segmented and modeled using learning-based approaches. Collecting objective phenotypic features from individual trees over time and storing them in a knowledge graph offers a convenient foundation for gaining new insights. Our approach shows promising results at this point for creating a detailed digital twin of a cherry tree and ultimately the entire orchard.
