Paper Abstract

Optical detection of fecal contamination on poultry carcasses is addressed in this paper. Specifically, a hyperspectral imaging system with a spectral range in the visible and near- infrared is used to capture imagery of a poultry carcass. A number of image processing routines are investigated for their effectiveness and efficiency at detecting feces. Based on the need for speed, the more simplistic mathematical operations seem to hold the most promise for detecting contaminated carcasses in real-time.
