Abstract:
A simple camera was attached to a Perten Single-Kernel Characterization System (SKCS) 4100 to measure single kernel morphology as they are fed through the SKCS. The camera and lighting were positioned above the SKCS weigher bucket. Each image of a wheat kernel was captured and processed in 15 to 60 ms. Image measurements included kernel area, length, and width.
