Progressing Fundamental Vision & Sensing and Demonstrating the Value of the Australian Meat Processing Industry

SAGE was assigned to undertake a brief research to gain an understanding of the current issues within the red meat industry and evaluate whether any solutions in other industries may be modified, adapted or ported over to this industry. These solutions were specifically targeted in the product inspection by integrating vision and sensing systems.

Three Abattoirs in NSW, QLD and SA have been visited with AMPC in 2014/2015 to gain an understanding of the existing solutions and differences within the sites. In the first visits the task and research direction was refined to a deeper investigation in Business Optimisation before applying vision and sensing systems, as those systems need preconditions in organisation and equipment set up.
