Recently, the approved-projects list of 2018 Major Science and Technology Project in Anhui Province was launched. And the project, “R & D and industrialization of AI sorting equipment for grain crop quality based on optical technology”, led by Meyer, was approved.
Optical inspection as its core technology, this project focuses on main factors that affect seed quality of rice and wheat such as decreasing purity, pests and bacteria infection, carrying out R & D of cutting-edge sorting technologies and equipment and their industrialization applications.
Seed quality is the lifeline of agriculture. Implementing the project will further promote informatization and intellectualization of seed quality inspection and sorting. Not only will it motivate technology innovation in the field of agricultural machines, but also play an important role of ensuring sustainable development of agriculture, promoting adjustment of agricultural structure and green growth.
