No-Touch Robotic Technology for Preparing Fresh-Cut Fruits the Vegetables Products Based on Machine Vision the Water-Jet Cutting

Objective

Demand for ready to eat (fresh-cut) fruits and vegetables have drastically grown during the last decade due to the changing human lifestyle in industrial countries. Contacts with human hands during fresh-cut fruits and vegetable process are one of the major potential sources of contamination for fresh-cut products. It is necessary to develop an automatic cutting process in order to improve the quality of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. This novel automatic cutting process will be achieved by developing a new water-jet cutting machine. The main tasks of research are to complement the water-jet cutting technology for fruits and vegetables with additional stage and to develop the practical way by which the technology can be commercially implemented. The results expected for this new machine are: -an improved quality of the product and safety of the process -no damage on the product -better environmental conditions -a cost competitiveness - a high quality edge and intricate cuts
