We have developed a number of post harvest vegetable processing systems. Organic products don't all grow the same way and so this is the challenge for machine vision.
When we built a Brussels sprout robotic peeler, we had assumed that every sprout was more or less the same. This is a naive assumption to make! There are many different varieties of sprouts which all differ not just in shape and size but colour as well. We thought every sprout would be more or less round and have a stem that extended out from the main body. The reality was very different and so we spent all four seasons analysing each new crop as it arrived at the warehouse.
The same principles have to be applied to all other fruit and vegetables that require to be processed in one way or another.
Adding 3D machine vision to the mix adds real value to the concept of post harvest vegetable processing.
