Automating Inspection

US - Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology are field-testing a new technology that could lead to the automation of many visual-inspection tasks in the poultry processing industry. The technology, called a systemic screener, is currently on trial at a commercial poultry processing plant. The systemic screener is installed near the front end of the chicken-processing line where cameras look for defects such as improperly bled birds and those afflicted by systemic diseases, such as septicaemia and toxaemia.
