The U.S. demand for deboned chicken has risen greatly in the past 5 years, with the expectations that this demand will oniycontinue at an accelerated level. The standard inspection process for bones in meat is for workers to manually feel for bones.It is clear that this time-consuming manual inspection method is insufficient to meet the increasing demand for deboned meatproducts. Georgia Tech Electrical Engineering faculty and Research Scientists in conjunction with a leading x-ray equipmentmanufacturer are working together on the development of a system to fuse information from visible images and x-ray imagesto enhance the accuracy of detection. Currently there are some bones that x-ray systems have difficulty detecting. These areusually relatively thin and are located near the surface of the meat. A primary example is a fanbone so called because of itsshape. We will describe and present results from work geared towards the development of an integrated system that wouldfuse visible and x-ray information. Significant benefits to the poultry industry are anticipated in terms of reduced processingcosts, improved inspection performance and increased throughput through the use of the integrated system to be described.Additionally, generic aspects of the proposed technologies may be applicable to other food processing industries.
