Meet the Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System: a Robot That Can Cut Your Poultry Up
I may be wrong, but knowing how to cut and debone poultry the proper way may not be all that common. Sure, there are people who can do that in their sleep, but for people like me, it is probably best to leave that task to the experts.
But what if you can have the Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System?
This system is actually a robotic system that has been designed to cut and debone chicken – and other kinds of poultry. The Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System is designed and created by a team at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).
Using advanced imaging technology coupled with the usual mechanical parts that we see in robots, the researchers were able to come up with a prototype of the Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System. Not only does this system make sure that there are no bone fragments once the task is done, but it also ensures that the cutting process produces the highest possible yield of meat.
That in itself is cool, even if you only think about chicken. What makes it even more interesting, however, is that the system takes into account the differences in sizes and shapes of poultry. That means the Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System can be used for practically any kind of bird that you want to cut up.
Of course, this does not seem to be a feasible solution for home cooks – for now. This can translate to savings for the poultry industry, however, and that just might also mean savings for consumers.
Whether the Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System does that or not, I think it’s just cool for a robot to be able to do such a thing, don’t you?
