Recognition of Cotton Contaminants via X-Ray Mircotomographic Image Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Technologies currently used for cotton contaminant assessment suffer from some fundamental limitations. These limitations result in the misassessment of the cotton quality, and have a serious impact on its economic value. Through our research, we have shown that X-ray microtomographic image analysis may be applied with a high degree of success to noninvasive evaluation of cotton for the recognition of contaminants. We believe that this procedure, when realized in real time, will have a serious impact on the cotton cleaning process, and indeed on the economic value of cotton.
