Demo Vision Inspection

We illustrated the use of spectrometers and hyperspectral cameras for determining (pork) meat quality and the use of hyper- and multispectral cameras for sorting beans and estimating the composition of soybeans. Webinar: “AI in Agri-food” In this webinar we talked about the application of Artificial Intelligence for digital image processing.
