Somatic embryogenesis is a process considered very promising in mass regeneration of plant materials. Quality evaluation of embryos' viability is deemed necessary during the process. Machine vision techniques have been or are being developed for quality sorting of embryos immediately before germination. In this project, a robotic workcell has been conceptually designed for quality sorting of somatic embryos employing machine vision system. The configuration of the workcell has been modeled using a 3D graphic modeling software package. The workcell component requirements, layout, and materials flow have been investigated for its workability. A numerical model has been developed to simulate the productivity of a workable layout. Some stochastic factors affecting the workcell productivity were considered in the numerical model. Engineering economic analysis was performed on the workcell for evaluating its cost-effectiveness.
