Abstract
Manufacturing processes that utilize natural products as raw materials for forming their deliverables face additional challenges in the areas of quality control and inspection. This comes about from the natural variability that occurs in the products. Systems to automate this activity have been difficult to design and implement from the view of algorithm complexity which impacts the computational requirements for real-time execution. This paper will describe a technique for recognizing global or systematic defects on poultry carcasses. A method for implementing the technique that is capable of executing at a rate of about 180 birds per minute is described.
