Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01294

AcronymJETFRUIT

Proposal title"No-touch" robotic technology for preparing fresh-cutfruits and vegetables

products based on machine vision and water-jet cutting

AbstractDemand for ready to eat (fresh-cut) fruits and vegetables has drastically grown during the last

decade due to the changing human lifestyle in industrial countries. Contacts with human

hands during fresh-cut fruits and vegetable process is one of the major potential sources of

contamination for fresh-cut products. It is necessary to develop an automatic cutting

process in order to improve the quality of fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. This novel

automatic cutting process will be achieved by developping a new water-jet cutting machine.

The main tasks of research are to complement the water-jet cutting technology for fruits

and vegetables with additional stage and to develop the practical way by which the

technology can be commercially implemented. The results expected for this new

machine are: -an improved quality of the product and safety of the process -no damage

on the product -better environmental conditions -a cost competitiveness - a high

quality edge and intricate cuts
