All delivered ingredients needs to be filtered and checked for the quality to pick out badly dried plants pieces or remove possible other plants pieces that accidentally got missed in. This process currently is very labour and time intensive, where staff working on the production line with years of experience and knowledge gathered through their work select each dried plan pieces by hand. This is a rather lengthy and time consuming process.
The company is aiming to increase their production output and requires technology that would aid this process with the aim to be able to completely automate this process in the long run.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Technology must be able to scan and deselect unwanted dried ingredients pieces at a high speed. Ideally this technology would be fully AI enabled and also work as part of an existing automated production line.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The company is seeking for a technical cooperation partner, who would either have already existing solution or would be able to create a solution that would fit specific company needs. Partner would undertake all research and development duties with company acting as a testing site and eventually the interested party to purchase the technology. The company would also consider joint venture agreement for such cooperation.
