Start date
2002
End date
2005
Objective
Investigate a novel optical sensing technique for determining the absorption and scattering properties of apple fruit. Develop mathematical methods and computer algorithms for extracting the absorption and scattering coefficients from hyperspectral images of apple fruit in the visible and near-infrared region. Develop simulation models to study light scattering and absorption in apple fruit and their relationship with fruit firmness and sugar content.
