Abstract: Date palm is the primary agricultural crop in Oman. Date fruits occupy 80% of its share in total fruits production in Oman. Over 50% of agricultural lands are used to cultivate the date palms in Oman. Over 50% of its production is used for human consumption and others used for animal feed. In date fruits packaging industries, sorting system plays a vital role. So many techniques are adopted for this process. But, machine vision based system proved as efficient one. So, in this paper, the machine vision system is realized by color and ultrasonic sensors. The main aim of this work is to sort the date fruits based on its color, size and features. In this paper, the Fuzzy logic controller is used to sort the dates according to the signals from the color and ultrasonic sensors. The sorted fruits collected in separate trays with the help of servomotor which is actuated by neural network. The experimental results show that the proposed system is more precise and accurate in sorting the Date fruits.
