Title: (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD TO DETECT UPSIDE DOWN EGGS
(ZH) 用于检测倒置蛋的设备和方法
Abstract: front page image
(EN) An apparatus to identify upside-down eggs of a batch of eggs includes a heating module configured to expose an air cell in each egg of the batch of eggs to a radiation flux. The apparatus also includes an imaging module with a thermal camera configured to capture thermal images of the batch of eggs when the eggs are not exposed to the radiation flux. The apparatus further includes an analyzer module configured to detect the presence of a heated zone in the air cell of each egg from the thermal images and identify upside-down eggs based on the presence of the heated zone. A method to identify upside-down eggs from a batch of eggs includes heating the batch of eggs with a radiation source, such as an infrared source, so as to generate a hot zone inside an air cell of each egg without significantly heating the rest of the eggs. Thermal images of the eggs are captured while the eggs are not exposed to the radiation source, analyzed to detect the presence of the hot zone and to identify theupside down eggs.
(ZH) 一种用于识别一批蛋中的倒置蛋的设备包括加热模块,所述加热模块被配置成将该批蛋中的每个蛋中的气室暴露于辐射通量。所述设备还包括具有热像仪的成像模块,所述热像仪被配置成在所述蛋没有暴露于所述辐射通量时捕获该批蛋的热图像。所述设备还包括分析器模块,所述分析器模块被配置成从所述热图像中检测每个蛋的所述气室中加热区的存在,并基于所述加热区的存在识别倒置蛋。一种用于从一批蛋中识别倒置蛋的方法包括用辐射源诸如红外源加热该批蛋,以便在每个蛋的气室内产生热区而不显著加热所述蛋的其余部分。在所述蛋没有暴露于所述辐射源时,捕获所述蛋的热图像,分析所述热图像以检测所述热区的存在并识别所述倒置蛋。
