Machine vision provides a cost-effective plastic sorting system

The existing techniques for plastic sorting include using x-rays and infrared spectrometers. The advantages of these techniques are to determine the nature of the plastic by the signature in the various wavelengths at a molecular level. But the technology is complex and expensive. The advantage of using machine vision in the visible light domain is a low cost with the capability of using standard machine vision algorithms.
