Image processing can be used to accelerate, control and optimize processes. When artificial intelligence comes into play, the range of applications expands even further, and this is especially true in the case of agriculture and the food industry, since it is difficult to control a very varied objects and processes with artificial vision applications. What exactly does this mean and what solutions have proven effective in practice?
The IDS Vision Channel is an online video and events platform from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, one of the leading companies in industrial image processing. IDS regularly presents new products and technologies on the platform and gives useful advice on their application.
How can you ensure that the consumer does not find annoying shell fragments in products such as muesli, biscuits or chocolate? Strelen Control Systems GmbH has developed a way to detect nuts and separate them from unwanted by-products and contaminants. The system can even detect quality defects in products, for example mold, dehydration or residue on the surface. The IDS Vision channel explains how it works and how users benefit.
Genie Enterprises will present the trends and possible uses of data, sensors, cameras and artificial intelligence in the field of smart agriculture with practical examples. The company studies possible uses for the product and identifies areas that are currently being researched. This includes cameras, monitors, an artificial nose for wine aromas or optimizing crop protection.
IDS familiarizes the public with the possibilities of the IDS NXT AI system, focusing in particular on the question of why artificial intelligence is useful for dealing with a wide variety of products and how the technology can be used if the user has no prior knowledge of deep learning or camera programming.
