Development of Primal Cut Recognition and Localisation Software for use in Robotic Pick and Pack Systems

Primal cut picking and packing is currently a labour intensive meat packing process which is completely manual. As a result of the technical complexities involved in this task, there is currently no automated solution capable of packing vacuum sealed primal cuts into cartons.

This project involved the design, development and implementation of an intelligent vision system and analysis software for the identification, geometric profiling and localisation of vacuum sealed primal cuts.
