Paper Abstract

We present in this paper the methods that were used to detect appearance defects on turkey carcasses on a slaughter line. In order to compare two segmentation methods, we also propose means to estimate the quality of detection in an objective way. We show in this paper that the use of color histograms turn out to be an efficient solution to such a problem, when the color gamut is confined and the color classes are close to each other. Also, the methods presented in this paper can easily be used for similar problems and are suitable for hi-speed color detection.
