EN The paper presents research and scientific considerations to determine the usefulness of modern measurement systems including computer tomography and machine vision systems for mapping the geometry and dimensional measurements of products in the food industry. Due to the variable characteristics of food products, their control during the production process (active metrology) increasingly requires the search for new measurement solutions. These criteria are met by measurement devices combined with classification, machine learning and artificial intelligence systems for automated feature analysis. The measurement methodology was developed, necessary system components were described and IT procedures were applied to enable correct measurements of the assumed product characteristics. Additionally, the factors influencing the errors of measurements obtained with the described systems are indicated, supported by statistical analysis of the obtained results. The study confirmed the suitability of modern measurement systems for product inspection in the food industry.
