Abstract :

Oil palm industry is one of the major industry in Malaysia. There are many new technology and mechanization introduced for the oil palm industry. It is because to reduce the much dependent on manual labour to carry out the operations in the plantations. Harvesting and the evacuation of FFB is the most important operation in the plantations and must be done efficiently to maintain the quality and gain more profit to the company. The normal ways that use in the plantation to collect the FFB and loosen fruit by the collector is they need to stop at each palm through the harvesting path to find it before transfer to the platform and then send to the mill. It is become difficult to the collector and take a time to find FFB and collect the loosen fruit. The FFB Detector applications can ease the process of evacuation FFB to the platform because the collector can find it from the coordinate that they get after harvesting process. In a conclusion the mobile applications can give benefit for the evacuation FFB operation in the oil palm industry.
