According to the research in this field, AVI provides results comparable to or better than those of human inspectors’, but with lower variability and maintaining at least 10 times higher speeds. Apart from foreign object detection, it can reveal surface defects, estimate products’ freshness, check their uniformity, and sort them into several classes. Thanks to constantly developing image analysis algorithms, the variety of tasks AVI is able to perform increases, along with the speed and accuracy of its performance.
