Paper Abstract

Foreign materials such as metal slivers and stones in packed food are listed safety hazards, which could lead to severe health problems. In this paper, a real time X-ray imaging inspection method is investigated for foreign material detection in chili packages. A new image segmentation method combining edge detection and region growing was successfully applied to address the challenges due to the uneven thickness of chili package.
