Register to see a recording of the webinar.
Note: During the live webinar, there was an issue triggering a pre-recorded demo showing the actual process for taking data, obtaining ground truth measurements of Brix, and analyzing the data. This has been addressed in the recording where we have inserted the video footage into its proper place.
Traditionally, blueberries are inspected manually, looking for defects, unripe berries, or bruising. The sweetness of the berries is oftentimes measured via destructive methods.
With Headwall’s hyperspectral imaging (HSI) technology, blueberries can be inspected based on their condition, and their Brix measurement can be predicted. This allows for a non-destructive, rapid measurement of large quantities of berries, with results in real time. Hyperspectral imaging allows growers to assign value based on rapid, accurate grading.
Will Rock, Ph.D, Product Manager, Machine Vision; and George Killian, Applications Scientist at Headwall, show how Brix in blueberries can be predicted using the MV.C NIR Hyperspectral Sensor and perClass Mira Stage. There was a live introduction and application presentation, pre-recorded hyperspectral-scanning demo, and live Q&A.
