Computer vision is powerful technology that has recently increased for the automatic inspection of food. Typical target applications include sorting, quality estimation from external or internal properties, process monitoring, and evaluation of experimental treatments. The capabilities of computer vision technology exceed the limited human capacity to evaluate long-term processes objectively or to appreciate events that take place outside the visible electromagnetic spectrum and the success strongly depends on a number of factors: sensor type, lighting, type of product, required processing speed, segmentation, recognition and classification strategies, and availability of training data, and so on.
