Paper Abstract

The work presented in this paper is pat of a system developed for fruit sorting. The machine vision unit is part of a distributed control system in which several machine vision modules can be integrated with a control module and a user interface unit. The control module takes care of the distributed control of the conveyor belt, weight units and fruit output units. The user interface is a front end to the user who can watch and control any part of the distributed system. The machine vision units are connected through a LAN to the user interface and through a CAN bus to the control unit in order to send and receive real time information during the on-line sorting process. Information that does not need real time communications are sent through the LAN under an ethernet protocol.
