AI And Robots Gain Traction In Food Manufacturing

September 11, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Food manufacturers are adopting vision-automation technology by combining advances in laser vision with artificial-intelligence software to carry out more-complex tasks. Process times for some applications can be about 100 times faster than humans, creating the potential of significant efficiency gains. For example, a sausage factory is using vision technology to cut sausage strings at a rate of 200 a minute. Food industry applications include optimal meat cutting, ensuring frozen pizzas have the correct toppings and ultrasonic slicing of cheese. Effective three-dimensional imaging will allow broader applications but costs are currently too high.[Image Credit: © forwimuwi73 from Pixabay]
