Identify the ripeness of oil palm is essential for estimating the oil content. Therefore, choosing a right color model is extremely important to fit the purpose. Currently, manual system conducted by human grader at oil palm mills lead to misconduct and disputes. Since color is main indicator of ripeness, it is important to research a right technique to determine the fruit ripeness identification. Thus, this paper aims to propose a suitable color model for oil palm fruit ripeness identification. In this study, two color models are chosen and experimented; RGB and HSV color model. However based on the experiments, HSV color model proved to be the best color model for oil palm ripeness identification. This result is also in line with color definition set by Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) regarding color brightness or intensity as an indicator of ripeness for oil palm fruits.
