Vision technology has become increasingly important in the poultry processing industry, as it offers numerous advantages over traditional visual inspection methods. With the use of advanced cameras and Artificial Intelligence, vision technology can quickly and accurately inspect poultry products for defects, contaminants, and other quality issues.
Poultry processors face a challenge with the natural variability in live bird intake when trying to maximize utilization of all parts of the chicken and meet customer orders. To achieve optimal bird distribution throughout the entire plant, a real-time classification system is required. With the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), vision technology can learn from previous inspections, continually improving its accuracy over time which is the case of ClassifEYE® 2.0.
The ClassifEYE® 2.0 system uses the most advanced AI technology to adapt to the local production environment and to ensure the highest detection quality at all times. The system computes macro-grades for all parts of the bird and then combines them into a weighted bird grade, which can be used for further best-suited distribution to the downstream processes: whole bird packing, cut-up, deboning, retail and Food Service.
ClassifEYE® 2.0 provides accurate defect detection and assistance in identifying the root cause through detailed and easy-to-understand detection widgets. The system’s dashboard is accessible within the local ClassifEYE® 2.0 network and allows immediate upstream corrections once a value-reducing threshold is reached. Immediate adjustments of processing parameters result in a rapid decrease in carcass damage and fewer downgrades, ultimately leading to the optimal value of every part of the bird.
For the highest detection details, the camera features a 1.4 megapixel colour sensor with specifically chosen optical components to imprint all available information in one shot to a digital data frame. The AI of ClassifEYE® 2.0 takes colour, texture and shape variations into account for precise detection. Robust construction and industrial-grade materials make the cameras highly durable, and able to function reliably in a rough production environment.
