Paper Abstract

The fresh produce packing industry represents a large potential market for machine vision inspection systems. Unlike most manufacturing industries, there is no single 'reference product' form which any deviations represent a flaw. The Optigrade II machine was designed to replace human sorters and extensively utilizes neural networks to emulate the human sorting process. The network architecture and design principles are presented with an emphasis on the problems arising in the development of a commercial product.
