Better blueberries with artificial intelligence

Better blueberries with artificial intelligence

Hall 9, Booth F-14 - Fruit Logistica 2020, February 5–7, Berlin

The KATO260 sorting machine was developed by BBC TECHNOLOGIES and TOMRA FOODS with the artificial intelligence-based tool LUCAi™.

It allows the machine to sort the fruit even more precisely and selectively. LUCAi™ is specially suited to the characteristics of blueberries and can better qualify premium quality products through its more precise sorting, thereby meeting higher customer demands.

Each berry is photographed by multiple cameras along a blueberry sorting line. LUCAi™ identifies traits that some people cannot perceive with the naked eye, and classifies the berries accordingly. The system can process up to 2,400 single images per second, with speed and precision facilitated by 17,408 graphic processors.
