A machine vision system for quality inspection of bulk rice seeds has been developed in this research. This system is designed to inspect rice seeds on a rotating disk with a CCD camera. The seeds scattering and positioning device on this system, under continuous feeding condition, reaches 85% fill-ratio of the number of holes on the disk. Combining morphological and color characteristics gave a highly acceptable classification. The high classification accuracies obtained using a small number of features indicate the potential of the algorithm for on-line inspection of germinated rice seeds in industrial environment. The overall average classification accuracy among the four categories was above 90%. This paper presents the significant elements of the computer vision system and emphasizes the important aspects of the image processing technique.
