CHERRY TOMATO_VISION, by UNITEC, is an innovative vision system (hardware and software), developed and manufactured entirely by UNITEC for the non-destructive detection of external quality of cherry tomatoes.
CHERRY TOMATO_VISION sorts and grades cherry tomatoes on the basis of parameters like skin defects (splits, insect damage, etc.) and shape, providing a coherent and constant product quality in time to the market.
The vision system CHERRY TOMATO_VISION can also sort accurately on the basis of colour and can remove unripe cherry tomatoes for further ripening. The system can therefore satisfy the requirements of markets that are particularly demanding in terms of product quality and presentation to the final consumer.
Moreover, this technology is able to detect defects that are difficult to spot with the naked eye, like bruises, over-ripening and dehydration.
