Automatic sorting to boost the pepper business

Manual sorting lines in bell pepper processing are labour-intensive and expensive, and quality is difficult to manage. Through this project, Pliant will investigate the possibility to replace manned lines with smart vision and sensor technology, controlled by neural networks.

An automatic sorting system has clear benefits for growers. In addition to reducing labour costs, it will ensure the uniform quality of the peppers – which will then fetch a better market price.

Located in The Netherlands, Pliant is a specialist in high-tech 2D and 3D vision solutions.
