A pilot-scale instrumental inspection system for poultry carcasses was assembled and is being tested for its robustness and real time operation. Two different techniques were implemented for the separation of wholesome and unwholesome carcasses on-line in real time. The first technique utilizes the visible-near-infrared spectroscopy of the carcasses and the other technique is based on multiple spectral imaging of the carcasses. They system acquired spectral images of the whole carcass and visible-near- infrared reflectance of its breast on a moving shackle and processes these spectral data for classification in real time. This paper presents the set-up of the pilot-scale instrumental inspection system and describes briefly the hardware and software modules implemented. Some preliminary test results are also presented.
