    The application of a RAM-based neural network to robot vision is demonstrated for the guidance of a pig evisceration robot. Tests of the combined robot-vision system have been performed at an abattoir. The vision system locates a set of feature points on a pig carcass and transmits the 3D coordinates of these points to the robot. An active vision strategy taking advantage of the generalisation capabilities of neural networks is used to locate the control points. A neural network PC-expansion board that provides a new classification every 180 mu s is used to speed up the neural network processing.
