Dunn, Mark T. and Billingsley, John (2007) The use of machine vision for assessment of fodder quality. In: M2VIP 2007: 14th Annual Conference on Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice, 3-5 Dec 2007, Xiamen, China.
At present fodder is assessed subjectively. The evaluation depends greatly on a personal opinion and there can be large variations in assessments. The project has investigated the use of machine vision in several ways, to provide measures of fodder quality that will be ojective and independent of the assessor. Growers will be able to quote a quality measure that buyers can trust. The research includes the possibility of discerning colour differences that are beyond the capability of the human eye, while still using equipment that is of relatively modest cost.
