✅ Your grading technology gets smarter every day. With grading performance moving towards 100% detection accuracy, you can fully trust the grading results.
✅ True-AI software has been trained to find defects all on its own, making your life easier.
The Power of AI in detecting complex defects
Every cherry is different. So is every defect. Defects occur in many ways. The good news is that you can detect complex defects and cherry characteristics with True-AI. This technology gives you a near-perfect grading accuracy and helps you with hard-to-detect defects such as black rot, fresh cracks and cracks within the stem area. In addition, it offers sensational reliability in detecting stems, neighboring stems and stem attachment points. Less operator input is required because our True-AI software has been trained to find defects all on its own.
See your grading technology getting smarter every day
Let’s talk about AI; how does it work? With True-AI, the algorithms are developed by using vast amounts of data of different cherry varieties gathered all around the world. By incorporating additional defect data on an ongoing basis, True-AI will be continually enriched with data. This data is collected from our large global customer base across different seasons and growing conditions. You can all benefit from this collective intelligence.
Can we make your life easier?
Yes, this technology is designed to make your life easier. Operator's tasks will be less complex and more automated. You will have more time to focus on other important operational issues. As grading performance moves towards 100% detection accuracy, grading tasks can be done with minimal staff. Many of the grading parameter, previously created by the operator, can now be managed by the system. The True-AI algorithms work out-of-the-box so that you can apply them immediately without modification.
The best of both worlds: Human & Technology
The operator still has an important role to play. His/her expertise relates to the dynamic quality standards demanded by specific customers and markets. You want the best of both worlds. 1. An operator who has knowledge of cherry quality characteristics. 2. This new grading technology to meet your customer’s unique demands
Shaping the future together with innovative cherry growers
The next generation of cherry grading is a sum of collective knowledge and experience. It’s built up through years of close cooperation with cherry growers and packers around the world. Over these years, we gathered tons of data about all kinds of cherry defects and grading challenges. With this intelligence, we have been working on the development of our Artificial Intelligence solution.
How did this collective intelligence arise?
For the past 15 years, Ellips has partnered with innovative cherry customers around the world. Together, we revolutionized grading, sorting and packing performance for cherries. These cherry businesses delivered outstanding results using grading technology.
What were the key factors for this joint success?
- Near-perfect size, color separation, and highly accurate sorting of defects such as rot, splits and nose cracks.
- The flexibility to sort cherries into different quality classes based on softness and firmness. Great for meeting premium, local and export demands.
- Delivering unmatched throughput (tons/lane) resulting in business productivity, profitability and reduce dependance on labor.
What will the future bring for you?
Innovations cannot stop; they enable the evolutions required to take your business to new groundbreaking levels. As such, innovation and continual product enhancement is the key to the long-term success of our customers. The new technology True-AI significantly improved grading performance and keeps getting smarter with every coming season.
