Paper Title:
A Real-Time Automatic Inspection System for Pattavia Pineapples
  Abstract

This paper presents a machine vision method to inspect the maturity of pineapples that ripe naturally. Unlike previous methods, the proposed technique can be categorized as a real-time non destructive testing (Real-Time NDT) approach. It consists of two phases, learning and recognition phases. In the learning phase, the system constructs a library of reference pineappleskin- color models. In the recognition phase, the same process is performed to build a pineappleskin- color model of the testing subject. The model is then compared with each of the reference in the library by a method called region-segmented histogram intersection. The subject is then labeled with the grade of the best match. The system achieved a high performance and speed (3 frames/sec.) in our experiment. The system also includes weighing machine on belt transmission for weight prediction.
