27 April 2009 Quantification and threshold detection in real-time hyperspectral imaging
Author Affiliations +
The technical challenges of applying hyperspectral imaging techniques to on-line real-time food monitoring is discussed. System optimization must be applied to the design of the hyperspectral imaging spectrograph, the choice and operation of the imaging detector, the design of the illumination system and finally the development of software algorithms to correctly quantify the hyperspectral images. The signal to noise limitation of hyperspectral detection is discussed with particular emphasis on the detection of moving objects at high measurement bandwidths. An example is given of the development of a simple but accurate algorithm for the detection and discrimination of rust particles on leaves.
