Analysis on Actuating Mechanism for Tomato Color Sorting Robot Based on High-Speed Photography
To separate objects (immature tomatoes, foreign material) accurately from tomatoes using actuating mechanism of tomato color grading robot, high-speed photography was used to acquire images the tomato sorting process for studying effect between tomato cast position and track for separating. Test results show that tomatoes cast position affects tomato sorting; tomato track from conveyer belt affects the hitting position of pneumatic ejection finger directly. High-speed photography is used for tomatoes sorting process analysis at high speed, which can be helpful for design of tomato color sorting robot.
