Title (EN) SEED SORTING
(FR) TRI DE GRAINES
Abstract:
(EN) A seed sorting system for sorting seeds includes a seed transfer station configured to move seeds through the system. An imaging assembly includes a first camera mounted above the seed transfer station and configured to acquire images of the seeds as the seeds move through the system and a second camera mounted below the seed transfer station and configured to acquire images of the seeds as the seeds move through the system. A sorting assembly is configured to sort the seeds into separate bins based on the acquired images of the seeds.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de tri de graines servant à trier des graines, qui comprend un poste de transfert de graines configuré pour déplacer des graines à travers le système. Un ensemble d'imagerie comprend une première caméra montée au-dessus du poste de transfert de graines et configurée pour acquérir des images des graines tandis que les graines se déplacent à travers le système et un seconde caméra montée au-dessous du poste de transfert de graines et configurée pour acquérir des images des graines tandis que les graines se déplacent à travers le système. Un ensemble de tri est configuré pour trier les graines dans des bacs distincts sur la base des images acquises des graines.
