A machine vision system was designed. for determining the peanut pod ripeness color after the outer hull layer of the pod had been removed. Pods were fed from a vibratory bowl feeder through a singulation chute to a measurement chamber where they entered free-fall. An IR detector sensed the presence of the peanut pod leaving the singulation chute and triggered a B/W CCD camera to capture the image. A ring strobe surrounding the camera lens illuminated the peanut. Algorithms were developed to determine the pod ripeness color for three views of the pod. 1.
