Abstract

There has been an increased interest in using impact techniques for sensing firmness of fruits and vegetables. When an impacter is used to impact a fruit, the impacting mass is an important parameter which affects both the impact signal and fruit damage. Results of theoretical analysis and tests conducted on two varieties of pears indicate that lowering the impacting mass results in amplifying the measured signal, reducing sensing errors, and minimizing damage to the fruit.
