Cutting it with the help of vision technology

The potential of 3D vision, AI, robotics and waterjet cutting technology to automate the traditionally labour-intensive task of trimming of vegetables has already been demonstrated for brussels sprouts, leeks and swede.Trimming of fruit and vegetables before packing has, traditionally, been a labour intensive process. However, with Brexit ending free movement…

Global Shutter vs Rolling Shutter

CMOS sensors - though immune to the blooming effects seen by CCD sensors - can be prone to other artefacts such as skew, wobble and smear. This is not always the case though as CMOS sensors can be equipped with something called a Global Shutter which can negate these effects.Firstly,…

With the rapidly increasing rate in which the virus spread, it was a real race against time for researchers, scientists and manufacturers alike. Under normal circumstances, a vaccine can take between 10 and 15…

Emulating humans who cut vegetables

Cutting leeks accurately with good repeatability (the name of the game) using automation is difficult because of the sheer variation and randomness of leeks - or any vegetable, for that matter. Using 3D and AI we try to emulate what a human would do.We started out by just looking at…
