  1. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...
