Food & Medicine

To ensure safe food production, inspection is a must. Inspecting processed foods for foreign substances using X-rays, a common practice, has limited effectiveness. It is especially difficult for X-rays to detect substances such as hair. Image processing is a promising technology in the future of food inspection, and can overcome many of these limitations. Currently, image processing technology is simply used in basic visual inspection or manufacture-date inspection of food or medicine packages.
