Abstract

In manual harvesting of oil palm, colour is the most important indicator for farmers to determine the maturity of the oil palm fruit called fresh fruit bunches (FFB). The latest vision technology used to inspect and grade FFB of an ordinary Elaeis guineensis had been successful in categorizing FFB ripeness. The optical properties of an oil palm FFB with its maturity status as ripe, unripe or overripe will be determined through its oil content measurement. No previous research was done on vision application to simulate oil palm fruits maturity or growth. The application is further in detecting the alkoloid level in Dioscorea hispida which locally known in Malaysia as ubi gadong, is one of the most economically important agriculture products in yam species, which serves as a fast food for millions of people in tropical and subtropical countries.
